About the Wine
"Life affirming" probably isn't the best way to describe this wine, but it comes close. The blend may sound a little bit weird on paper, but if Unico Zelo has taught us one thing, it's to be open minded and to drink it before you judge it. And hot damn, this wine is good.
Light and dry, with an array of scents and flavours, ranging from red cherries to green apples, blueberries to passionfruit. It's a veritable fruit salad of a wine, but it works effortlessly. Light and bright, with crunchy acid, it's designed to take a chill and for a relaxed drinking session. Fragrant and fun. Fine form from Unico Zelo, as always.
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.
