This is our baby, the Fiano that receives the most attention.
About The Wine
Unico Zelo husband-and-wife team Brendan and Laura Carter are arguably Australia's most passionate Fiano advocates.
Of the pair's three single vineyard Fianos, this is the 'Grand Cru', the wine that Brendan (who occasionally operates under the #FianoMan alias) told us is "our baby, the Fiano that receives the most attention".
Coming from the cooler high altitude Kersbrook sub-region in the Adelaide Hills, the 'Alluvium' is the most structural and no doubt age-worthy of the trio.
In the Carter's own words, "it's our special-occasion Fiano, one for the cellar and one for the table." This is Fiano at another level. Enjoy.
About Unico Zelo
Unico Zelo is the project of winemaking couple Brendan and Laura Carter. In their words, their aim is to create “Italian-inspired, textural and site-expressive wines” and “Australian examples of Mediterranean varieties in an approachable and jovial fashion.”
Since bursting onto the scene in 2014 with their eye-catching, outrageously good value alternative vino, the Carters have spread their wings and their range. They now make a large suite of wines, including single vineyard examples of Fiano, Nero d'Avola and Nebbiolo. They are one of the most dynamic winemaking duos in the Adelaide Hills.
