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.

2014 Unico Zelo Esoterico

2014 Unico Zelo EsotericoMade from a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Fiano and Muscat, sourced from various regions in South Australia. Another great value white wine that has seen some skin contact and has been left unfined and unfiltered. Excellent value. A very affordable way to check out how good a skin contact wine can be.

Wild nose with lots of floral notes alongside aromas of citrus and pineapple. A little hint of baked bread yeastiness. Wonderfully textural wine and the flavors stick around for a good amount of time leaving lots to ponder. A very interesting and quite unique wine.

2014 Unico Zelo Nero D'avola

Grapes have been sourced from a vineyard in Riverland, SA and underwent 30% whole bunch fermentation prior to ageing in old oak. Another interesting good value wine from Unico Zelo.

Fresh cherry and dark berry nose with some funkier elements at play. Soft tannins and mild acidity make this an easy drinker. A decent wine for the price.

2014 Unico Sauvignon Blanc

With grapes sourced from three vineyards in the Northern part of the Adelaide Hills, this wine spent around 3 weeks in contact with its skins and around 60% of it was barrel fermented. Not your average Sauvignon Blanc.

Savory nose with some herbaceous and minerally elements. Not much of the typical fruity aromas for this varietal. Reminds me a bit of some Vermentinos I've had. Interesting aromas, texture, and mild acidity make this probably the most unusual Sauvignon Blanc I've had. I

2014 Unico Zelo Muscat d’Alessandria

Sourced from 70 year old bush vines from Ricca Terra Farms in the Riverland region, this wine saw three days of skin contact and underwent barrel fermentation. A wonderfully textural wine, that developed while drinking.

I got wafts of peaches and apricots, with more soft fruit flavors delivered on the palate. Has managed to maintain a freshness, reminiscent of must shortly after pressing. Such an interesting texture and subtly creamy mouthfeel. Great value, particularly for this style of wine.

2014 Unico Zelo Grenache

Sourced from one of the few parcels of Grenache in the Adelaide Hills, this wine was made from hand picked grapes that then underwent 100% whole bunch fermentation for 10 days, prior to being pressed off for the completion of fermentation to occur in old oak puncheons. 

A very lively nose, with lots of zippy hits of ginger and spice. The time spent on stems definitely comes through and comes off a bit green and herbaceous, for my taste. Fine tannins, with moderate length make for very easy drinking.
