Unico Zelo is a small winery, run by the youthful Brendan and Laura Carter. Still only in their twenties, this dynamic couple have been making wine under the Unico Zelo label for the last seven years, taking their inspiration from their intense passion for their native land. The wines are crafted from varieties that require minimal intervention, both in the vineyard and the winery. The in-depth study of vineyard sites in South Australia has led them to focus on those Italian varieties which flourish in
the inland, continental climate of the Clare Valley and Riverland. These delicious and unique wines combine sustainability and drinkability to great effect.
The grapes for this wine are sourced from unirrigated vineyards planted on rich red sandy soils over a limestone base, near to the town of Barmera, where they grow in almost desert-like conditions.
Following a four day maceration, fermentation took place without temperature control in stainless steel, using only wild yeast. The only addition is a small amount of sulphur at bottling.
This bright and enticing wine opens with intense aromas of red fruit on the nose. It has a fantastic, crunchy redcurrant fruit profile on the palate supported by elegant silky tannins. A delicious example of Spain's indigenous, Atlantic red varieties.
