Unico-Zelo River Sand Fiano 2020 (Riverland, South Australia) "...lemon, pineapple, nuts..."
The Riverland region has become a hotbed for some of the country’s most delicious (and certainly best value) Fianos, a reputation further amplified by this delicious texture-bomb from Unico Zelo young guns Brendan and Laura Carter. Coming from a warmer climate and growing in a mixture of clay and sand, Brendan and Laura’s ‘River Sands’ version of this exciting grape is all about texture, richness and upfront drinkability. As they say themselves, this is their “daily-drinking Fiano”! A leading wine for the Riverland region and one of the most delicious Fianos we’ve encountered.
"On the nose, preserved lemon, beezwax, pineapples and nuts. The palate has an unctious, glossy texture with some savoury and herbal edges adding interest. Finishes chewy and refreshing. Very different wine but such enjoyable drinking." - Winemaker
