Unico Zelo The River Nero Riverland 2017
Riverland is situated east of Barossa in the Lower Murray zone of South Australia. Bordering Victoria, it is the largest wine region in Australia in terms of volume, accounting for half of the territory’s output and almost a quarter of the national total. This viticultural area, with some of the mostancient soils on earth, epitomizes what it is to craft fine wine on the edge. Deep iron-rich sand over limestone plus the insane water efficiency of this Siclian vine, allows the 2017 River Nero (d’Avola) to shine, offeringsucculent, juicy berry fruit and aromatic purity. This is a supremelyrefreshing red that spends five days on its skins and sees no oak tomaximize its vibrance and versatility with food.
