Unico Zelo Alluvium Fiano 2020
Southern Italian grape varieties like Fiano have found a happy home in Australia. Alluvium for example, is Fiano grown in the relatively cool climate region of South Australia’s famed Adelaide Hills. It’s taut and driven by citrus flavours and pith. If you can keep your mitts off this for a bit, it’ll broaden nicely. If you can’t, enjoy all the lean, dry, grapefruity goodness.
With a thoughtful, holistic approach, Brendan and Laura Carter of Unico Zelo focus on mainly Italian varieties from the Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills and Riverland. We can confirm that the wines are consistently yum, but we’d urge you to delve into their website for a glimpse at their very considered approach and initiatives. This includes reducing their water usage, reducing their environmental footprint, and ensuring grape growers are paid much higher than the industry average. It’s an exciting future for the Australian wine industry with people like the Carters getting stuck in.
