Unico Zelo Pipe Dream Nero d’Avola 2021
Sourced from the Birdwood vineyard in Northern Adelaide Hills. 500 meters above sea level, planted in Alluvial Quarts-Shot Clay. Grafted over to Nero d’Avola in 2015. Typically as with the Fiano it’s the slowest ripening of the 3 regional bottlings. Pipe Dream regardless of the vintage for me always smells like Black Cherry yoghurt, memories of growing up and fighting over the Ski yoghurt four pack, black cherry always the most sought after flavour between my brother and I.
The darkest, fruit forward and overt Nero of the single vineyard range.
Hand picked + wild fermented. All Nero’s spend 7 days on skins during fermentation, pressed off to barrel. Elevage in 2nd year fill oak barrel and foudre.
