Unico Zelo River Sand Fiano 2021
Zero meters above sea level in what effectively is a ‘desert’. Very sandy soils. Sourced from a certified Organic vineyard called Bassham in Barmera in the Riverland. A moderate level of ripeness coupled with a moderate to low level of acidity. “Broad and voluptuous without being overly heady, aromatic or intense” as Brendan describes. Perhaps the most accessible style of the 3 single region Fiano’s. 48 hours of skin contact in the crusher after picking. Pressed then wild fermented in tank. racked off gross lees post ferment. 9 months elevage on fine lees. Occasional battonage during ageing.
