Producer Unico Zelo is a small winery, run by the youthful Brendan and Laura Carter. Still only in their mid-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.

Vineyard - Grapes for this wine were sourced from unirrigated, nine-year-old vineyards planted on iron oxide rich sandy soils over a limestone base, near to the town of Waikerie.

Winery - Following one day of skin contact prior to pressing, fermentation took place oxidatively and without temperature control in stainless steel, using wild yeast.

Taste - This Fiano combines a bracing acidity with the textured, waxy mouthfeel so typical of the variety. Crisp yet fully ripe, combining green apples, peach blossom and honeydew melon with a savoury, pithy complexity.
