Unico Zelo Esoterico 2020
Not many wines come with the level of cult clout that Esoterico comes with. The fact that no one can pronounce its name or the grapes that it's made from only adds to the mystic of this wine. The initial punch of juicy apricots, mangos and nectarines makes it immediately pleasing, the spice and texture of the wine created through skin contact has you revisiting with intrigue and excitement for every sip. Unpronounceable grape varieties that make up this wine are Zibibbo, Moscato Giallo, Gewürztraminer, Greco and Fiano.
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.
