Unico Zelo Jade & Jasper Fiano 2023
Unico Zelo have championed this variety from the very outset by showcasing what this varietal can do in an ever-warming climate, retaining acidity in desert like conditions, dry grown throughout the growing season. Surely a grape for the future of the Australian wine industry. Those who know this producer well will know they produce more expressions of Fiano than anyone else from single vineyard/region expressions, Pet Nat and even their off dry Panda Panda label. Passionate about Fiano for sure but Jade and Jasper was where it all began.
Bunches are de-stemmed then left on skins for 24 hours. Pressed off, wild fermented in tank on full lees, no settling/racking prior. Lees stirring for 6 to 8 weeks. Light filtering prior to bottling. The Alpha & Omega of Unico Zelo. When discovering the ability of Fiano’s incredible to be dry grown in the Riverland, a bonafide desert, it set us on the path that we were set to follow. It also certainly helps that the wine produced from it is nothing short of a delight. Elegant whiffs of jasmine and white peach blossoms, racy and crackling acidity with distinct Fiano texture. One of those white wines that can suit almost any situation calling for a good glass – it’s destined for the lunch table”
