Unico Zelo Halcyon Days Nero D’Avola
WHY WE LOVE IT
- A vegan-friendly, organically managed from Barmera, Riverland.
- Laura Carter is leading the way as owner and a woman winemaker for Unico Zelo. Her mission when developing these wines… to craft wines that
espouse a minimal intervention philosophy and create drinkable and refreshing styles of wine.
Varietal Composition: 100% Nero d’Avola
Elaboration: Sometimes there are those wines that are an utter joy to drink and that make you feel good – so good you’ll catch yourself grooving! For us it’s ‘Halcyon Days’. Organically managed in Barmera by the Bassham Family, the hot summers this grape adores gives the wine all the qualities we love in a great medium bodied red wine.
Tasting Notes: Fresh acidity, plush red fruits, a whisper of spice and the kind of structure that’s ready for the esky (Australian brand of portable cooler). It’s the red that puts a beaming smile on your face. A pretense free wine made for good times, good people and maybe a disc of pizza or two..
A new venture in the Adelaide Hills by winemaking couple, Brendan and Laura Carter. Following their passions for Italian-inspired, textural and site-expressive wines, they seek to create Australian examples of Mediterranean varieties in an approachable and jovial fashion..
