This a spicy, lime-licked Fiano, that begs for a great food match.
About The Wine
If Unico Zelo's River Sands Fiano is for easy-drinking and the Alluvium is for the cellar / special occasion, then this Slate Farm Fiano release is made for food.
At least that's how Brendan Carter put it to us, and it's hard to argue with the #FianoMan when it comes to matters of this Italian sensation.
Hailing from the Polish Hill area of the Clare Valley, this has both flavour and structure in spades, and with its spicy, savoury persona is really without comparison when it comes to Aussie Fiano.
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.
