2014 Unico Zelo Dolcetto

Unico Zelo DocettoMade from fruit sourced from the Clare Valley, alongside a smaller amount of fruit from their own Adelaide Hills vineyard. A very easy drinking, yet interesting wine at a very fair price.

I get aromas of violet and cherry. Very soft tannins and mild acidity make this an easy drinking wine that I could see going well with plenty of food options. I quite enjoyed it with a margherita pizza.

2013 Yelland and Papps Sete Di Vino

Yelland and Papps are not your average Barossan wine producers. Unlike many wine makers in the region, Susan Yelland and Michael Papps are a young family of first generation wine makers. They source many of their grapes from vineyards around the region and have a small vineyard of their own. Most importantly they are making really great and unique wines.

Sete di Vino translates from Italian into "thirst for wine", a sentiment I can relate to. This blend of Barbera, Lagrein, and Dolcetto is a perfect everyday drinking wine, that is great with food. Some savory elements on the nose meld well with flowery aromas and good fresh dark berry flavors. A bit of sour cherry, soft tannins, and a nice oak finish.

This wine is drinking great right from the start, so no need to cellar. Paired fantastic with pizza and cured meats, and would likely do well alongside plenty of other dishes. I'll be buying this again.
