Unico Zelo is the Adelaide Hills-based project of winemaking couple Laura and Brendan Carter. In their words, "Inspired by an intense passion for the land, our wines are crafted to showcase unique sites and soils that Australia has to offer - in styles that are typified by the life and culture of this sunburnt country - from varieties that require minimal intervention." Unico Zelo is one of the most exciting and innovative wine ventures in Australia at present, showing a side of Aussie winemaking we don't usually see a lot of over here. It's so refreshing as is this, their take on the Italian Dolcetto variety. Lifted, juicy, gorgeous.
Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"​A foray into a very exciting piece of dirt - known as Polish Hill River (Clare Valley). We once told ourselves, that if we weren't looking at the Adelaide Hills for the best sites for our varieties - it'd be Clare Valley. Inland, continental climate, warms days and cold nights. Not to mention slate-ridden soils that pebble all through the vineyard. It's the sort of thing that winemakers live for - and we're pleased to say our punt on this family-owned vineyard has paid off. That's not to take the thunder away from our tiny Adelaide Hills vineyard, which provides the aromatic spark of life to this wine.

Known as the 'little sweet one' in its homeland - although all the Dolcetto crafted there are most definitely dry. It's the impression of fruit sweetness (or juiciness) that gives an effect of confection - smells sweet, tastes dry. This cheeky Dolcetto is no different - an aromatic, bright and tight little dry red that's absolutely perfect for chilling down and drinking (rather quickly) during those warm balmy days, when whites just don't cut the mustard."
93/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front (2016 Vintage)
“This is a drink! Huzzah! How do you do? Smells like a bunch of sweet flowers, cut with spice, sniffs of cherry jam, young port and berries straight off the bush. The palate is sweetish, plush-warm upfront, chalky-dry in tannins, bright in acidity, finds a stride and length. Indeed, it’s both beautiful in bouncy fruit character and refreshing cut. Nails the brief. Indeed, locks it down. Buy for summer.”
