Unico Zelo Harvest Syrah

Unico Zelo Harvest Syrah

WHY WE LOVE IT

  • An Australian grower co-operative wine from the Northern Adelaide Hills. Half the profits go directly to the grower’s, investing in the grass-roots of the industry to innovate and weather the seasons.
  • The vines are grown in Birdwood, Adelaide Hills and sits on soils of Alluvial Quartz-Shot Clay.
  • Vegan approved.

Varietal Composition: 100% Syrah

Elaboration: Crushed and then wild fermented. 5-days on skins. Oak treatment: Old French Oak Puncheons (500l)

Tasting Notes: A long ripening season means spicy characters when it comes to Adelaide Hills Syrah, and the vines didn’t disappoint! A rich generosity of flavor given marvelous definition through a star anise, white pepper and cardamom savory spice that keeps any hint of overripe characters at bay. A stunning example of what the alluvial soils of the Adelaide Hills can lend to one of Australia’s more iconic grape varieties.
