Laura & Brendan Carter are two of Australia's most energetic and forward-thinking winemakers - their wines also happen to be incredibly popular with the (very smart and good-looking) customers at Different Drop!

In this pack you will see the best of what they do, their single vineyard expressions of their pet varieties, Nero d'Avola & Fiano.

2022 Unico Zelo Alluvium Fiano

Of the pairs' three single vineyard Fianos, this is the 'Grand Cru', the wine that Brendan (who occasionally operates under the #FianoMan alias) told us is "our baby, the Fiano that receives the most attention".

Coming from the cool Mylkappa Vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, the 'Alluvium' is the most structural and no doubt age-worthy of the trio.

In the Carter's own words, "it's our special-occasion Fiano, one for the cellar and one for the table." This is Fiano at another level. Enjoy.


2022 Unico Zelo River Sand Fiano

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.


2023 Unico Zelo Slate Farm Fiano

If Unico Zelo's River Sands Fiano is for daily drinking and the Alluvium is for the cellar / special occasion, then this Slate Farm Fiano release is made for food.

At least that's how Brendan Carter put it to us, and it's hard to argue with the Fiano King when it comes to matters of this Italian sensation.

Hailing from the Polish Hill area of the Clare Valley, this has both flavour and structure in spades, and with spicy, savoury persona, it's really without comparison when it comes to Aussie Fiano. Ultra tasty.


2021 Unico Zelo Halcyon Days Nero d'Avola

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.


2021 Unico Zelo Pipe Dream Nero d'Avola

Ask Unico Zelo winemaker Brendan Carter the reason for the name 'Pipe Dream' for this wine and he chuckles, explaining that he has a pipe dream that one day Nero d'Avola will be planted more widely in Australian than Shiraz.

Maybe one day!

This wine is all about exploring what Nero can do from a cooler climate in the Adelaide Hills (Birdwood specifically) as opposed to its usual warmer Aussie homes of Heathcote, McLaren Vale and Riverland.

The resulting wine is impressive, pulsating with both brightness and concentration, whilst never losing its natural acidity.

Not a lot made, but absolutely delicious! The perfect drop for when you're feeling a little fancy.


2022 Unico Zelo Mallee Gambit Nero d'Avola

After five years of making wine from this vineyard in the Clare Valley's Polish Hill River district, the Carter winemaking duo reckon they've nailed what it takes to make the fruit sing.

And who could disagree? This is an exceptionally juicy Nero, packed with the sour cherry note that lovers of the grape crave as well as a somewhat sensual herbaceousness that adds a little complexity.

Another knockout wine from Unico Zelo, who are making wines with great balance, length, and precision.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
