About

About The Wine

The Riverland region has become a hotbed for some of the country's most delicious (and certainly best value) Fianos, a reputation further amplified by this delicious texture-bomb from Unico Zelo young guns Brendan and Laura Carter.

Coming from a warmer climate and growing in a mixture of clay and sand, Brendan and Laura's 'River Sands' version of this exciting grape is all about texture, richness and upfront drinkability. 

As they say themselves, this is their "daily-drinking Fiano"! A great representation of the Riverland region and one of the most delicious Fianos we've encountered.

About Uncio 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

On the nose, preserved lemon, beezwax, pineapples and nuts. The palate has an unctious, glossy texture with some savoury and herbal edges adding interest. Finishes chewy and refreshing. Very different wine but such enjoyable drinking. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From The Producer

Hailing from the Waikerie Vineyard, on the southern side along a bend of the downward flowing might Murray River. A metre's worth of sand sitting atop limestone-rich clay gives these vines an incredibly healthy ground to stretch their roots and thrive in the saline-rich environment. A Fiano with a richness and svelte texture, it's our daily-drinking Fiano!
