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.

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!

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

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
