2021 "Riversand" Fiano
Unico Zelo's well-loved wine returns to our shelves in a new vintage. From the sunny Riverland hails this glistening gold Fiano. It has the same structure as the 2019 vintage, but this one's a little younger, livelier, and fruitier. Lots of pineapple on the nose, caramel and almonds as well. The ripe aromas make it feel sweet even though it's a dry wine with no sweetness. It's somewhat savory, but clean with a crisp acidity. The seaside location of the Bassham vineyard arguably contributes a lick of salinity and minerality that completes its refreshing finish. Light to medium-bodied with a waxy texture-- it's a treat to any level of wine drinker, young and old.
This wine surprises people with powerful flavors that aren't expected in a bottle at its price point but at the same time familiar and comforting. For that reason, it's a delightful accompaniment to family dinners.

Brendan and Laura Carter are the husband and wife team behind Unico Zelo in Gumeracha, Adelaide Hills in South Australia.
Working with their own vineyard and with growers from nearby vineyards, Unico Zelo champions lesser known varietals grown in traditionally ‘unglamorous’ sites.
Varietals like Nero d’Avola, Fiano, Nebbiolo, Zibibo, and more thrive in Australian soil, and are naturally made into wonderfully structured wines with quirky flavors that make for approachable drinking. Truly natural wines for the people.
