About The Wine
Few wine ventures are as committed to the idea of sustainability as Brendan and Laura from Unico Zelo. Their championing of Italian varieties, particularly Nero d'Avola and Fiano, comes from their belief in their suitability to Australia.
Nero is a particularly hardy grape and it thrives in warm, dry climates. So, here they take the fruit from one of the warmest and driest regions in the country and make a glugable, slurpable red which is ideal quaffing for just about any night of the week.
This is their brightest and freshest feeling Nero to date. A dash of old vine Zibbibo (white wine) adding lift and a super zippy crunch of acidity. It's great drinking at a great price and a little left of centre. More inventive stuff from this energetic couple.
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.
