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 blue slate and shale soils in the Polish Hill River subregion of the Clare Valley. Harvest took place on the 20th 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.


Red Blend - Clare Valley. One of our fan favourite wines, and we can see why - a jovial, approachable and smashable blend of Barbera, Nebbiolo and - making its debut - Sangiovese from the Clare Valley. The pretence is well and truly left at the door for this wine, a blue fruited juice bomb of deliciousness with unmistakably herbaceous aromatics. A Fan Favourite and a Team Favourite.
