About The Wine

The Jungle Jungle (formerly Cherry Fields) has become one of the most popular wines in the UZ range over the last couple of vintages, and it's in top form again.

Once again it comes from the Polish Hill River sub-region of the Clare Valley, a place Brendan and Laura Carter love sourcing fruit from. When you think Dolcetto you think sweet, fruity reds, but this is anything but.

Wildly aromatic, vibrantly juicy and surprisingly structural, this is a lot of wine built into not a lot of body. The Carters recommend this wine for "eating with your hands", and 20 minutes in the fridge would do it no harm at all. It's different, yes, but most of all it's just one of those reds that is near impossible to put down.

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.

Additional Info

From The Producer

One of our favourite wines to drink; the Clare Valley is perfectly suited to a variety like Dolcetto. The warm days bring bright, ripe fruit. The cool nights let it retain its natural acidity. The Clare Valley's signature herbaceousness gives it a fragrant edge - yet there is only one word we need to encapsulate this wine: Juicy. Stupidly Juicy. Bright plums and cherries are jam-packed in the glass, with svelte and more-ish tannin - it’s one of those wines that just disappears before you know it, especially when lightly chilled on a warm spring day! Enjoy whilst eating with your hands for maximum deliciousness and supreme refreshment. Welcome to the Jungle Jungle.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Aromas of cherries and plums on the nose, with a subplot of gentle, dusty spice. The mouthfeel of this wine is superb. It's medium-bodied at best, round and fruit-sweet before gradually fading away to palate cleansing acidity and some mighty fine tannins. Those tannins are a standout feature of the wine. Playful but serious all at once, and eminently drinkable. - 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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

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 match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
