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, twenty-eight year-old vineyards planted on shale soils over a blue slate base, in the Polish Hill River subregion of the Clare Valley. Harvest took place on the 5th of April.
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.
One of our favourite wines to drink; the Clare Valley is perfectly suited to a variety like Dolcetto. The warm days bring bright, ripe fruit. The cool nights let it retain its natural acidity. The Clare Valley’s signature herbaceousness gives it a fragrant edge - yet there is only one word we need to encapsulate this wine: Juicy. Stupidly Juicy. Bright plums and cherries are jam-packed in the glass, with svelte and more-ish tannin - it’s one of those wines that just disappears before you know it, especially when lightly chilled on a warm spring day! Enjoy whilst eating with your hands for maximum deliciousness and supreme refreshment.
1% of all sales of this years Jungle Jungle Dolcetto will be donated to 1% For The Planet in an effort to the combat environmental issues that we face globally.
