About the Wine
The Riverland region has become a hotbed for some of the country's most delicious (and certainly best value) Fianos, a reputation further amplified by this delicious texture-bomb from Unico Zelo young guns Brendan and Laura Carter.
Coming from a warmer climate and growing in iron-rich sand on limestone, Brendan and Laura's 'River Sands' version of this variety is all about texture, richness and upfront drinkability.
As they say themselves, this is their "daily-drinking Fiano"! A great representation of the Riverland region and one of the most delicious Fianos we've encountered.
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.
