DESCRIPTION
  • Hailing originally from Campania, this frisky little Riverland take on Fiano by young upstarts Unico Zelo is a cracker. It comes from the highly esteemed Ricca Terra vineyards, and is all about the mineral drive and tangy sherbert acidity. With a little skin-contact it's also a rippled with apple skin and grapefruit pith that cleanses the palate and keeps everything driving along.

    Unico Zelo have of late been taking their winery to the next level, with some serious international attention coming their way. In fact the Jade and Jasper Fiano has made it all the way to Decanter Magazine in the UK, where the 2017 vintage scored a whopping 93 points and was dubbed 'first class'.

    If you have yet to board the Unico Zelo train, then hop on and make their Fiano your first port-of-call. A winner, and an easy summer drink.

    Vegan Friendly too!

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    A labour of love and passion, originally hailing from Campagnia, Fiano is a variety of incredibly ancient heritage. A true pleasure to craft. One of the most complex noses of any white variety. 

    Method: 24 hours skin contact, wild ferment, matured in stainless steel

    Variety - Fiano
    Region - Waikerie, Riverland
    Soil - Ancient sandy limestone
    Alcohol - 12.5%

    TASTING NOTES

    Full of white peach blossoms, honeydew and lemon, all covered in a generous splash of Grannysmith Apple. This continues onto an electric palate, lifted by a rich fruit-sweetness, and sparked to life with a crispy acidity. A pleasure to drink at any time of the day.

  • REVIEWS

    'Brendan and Laura Carter's cellar door is at their Gumeracha distillery in the Adelaide Hills, but the fruit for this superb Fiano comes from ancient, sandy limestone soils on the lauded Ricca Terra Farm in the Riverland, a specialist in alternative varieties. With 24 hours' skin contact it's beautifully creamy, nutty and full of tropical and stone fruit characters on a waxy, textural palate that shows great freshness and length. First class.'
