About The Wine

The Berry Blossom Rosé is a cheeky little number. The majority of this release comes from 25-year-old Dolcetto vines in the famous sub-region of Polish Hill River in the Clare Valley, this is a seriously un-serious wine.

Rosés are meant to be fun and smashable, that's exactly what this is. That's not to say it doesn't have some class to it, but it is just a good, honest drink, and one that is perfectly suited to our warm, seaside culture.

As the U.Z. team puts it, "It's a wine of sharing, enjoyment, frivolity - and freedom." and we couldn't agree more!

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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Wild strawberry’s and cherries and a smidge of the Dolcetto spice on the nose. In the mouth, it is crunchy and clean with perky acidity smoothed over by a gentle creaminess through the finish. Finishes with glace cherry and spice. Yummo. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From The Producer

It's pretty hard to go past the chance to craft a wine like this when you're presented with a incredible site like Polish Hill River, marbled with blue/grey slate and planted to 25 year-old Dolcetto vines at 450 metres elevation.

Whatever your moniker is - Rosé, Rosato, Rosado - it's a distinctive style of wine that is so well-suited to the warm, dry (and mostly seaside) climates that Australian's endure (or celebrate?). This is by no means a cerebral wine. It's a wine of sharing, enjoyment, frivolity - and freedom.

Method: 4 hours skin contact, wild ferment, matured in stainless steel.

Blend : Dolcetto, Cabernet Sauvignon
ABV : 12.8%
