About The Wine
It's only been on the Australian radar for a relatively short time, but the Carters picked up the Nero d'Avola ball and are running with it at pace.
After four years spent scouring the Riverland for a Nero site worthy of an individual bottling, the Carters found a lovely vineyard in Barmera, Riverland, boasting iron-rich sandy soils.
This is a finer-boned expression of the variety than the Pipe Dream - perhaps more 'Pinot-esque' version of Nero and a really delicious thing to drink. Bring it along to your next gathering, it'll be the life of the party.
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.
