Unico Zelo Tropo Pink Petnat
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Sparkling wine is a joyous thing, whether it be Grand Cru Grower Champagne or cheap as chips Prosecco, it’s built for celebrations and sunshine imbibing.
- Pet Nat is truly the most democratic and exciting of the field, so it’s only fitting that Unico Zelo added it to their Tropo range.
- By piecing together a lovely blush blend of Adelaide Hills Chardonnay, Skinsy Pinot Gris and a tiny dose of Merlot to make the most refreshing bubbly boy in the game.
Varietal Composition: Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Merlot
Elaboration: The grapes for this wine are grown in Adelaide Hills. A unique blend of red and white varieties using the “pétillant naturel” – a French term that roughly translates to “naturally sparkling.”
Tasting Notes: Spring strawberries, pickled cherries, red currants, ripe pear and creaming soda all at once. A lovely dry, saline finish to boot.
Brendan and Laura Carter have quickly emerged as the most dynamic winemaking duo in the Adelaide Hills – In their words they seek to create “Italian-inspired, textural and site-expressive wines.” From single vineyard Nero d’Avola, Fiano, and Nebbiolo, there is something for everyone here as long as you seek individualistic, natural-spectrum, energy-packed wines.
