Unico Zelo Esoterico 2022

Adelaide Hills, Australia


Crafting a pinpoint precise, squeaky clean wine is one of the most boring things we could possibly think of. We prefer embracing your inner creative, and searching for more radical experiences. This has become one of our most cult-followed wines since we began. It's not exactly white wine, nor red - many call it Amber wine...but we just call it Esoterico. We make no additions of any kind - save for sulphur when we bottle the wine. There is no fining or filtration involved, with the wine allowed to clarify by gravity alone - resulting in a slight haze and sediment. This is one of the most enjoyable wines to craft, as there was no preconceived idea of what it must taste like - the chief driver is pure drinkability - a 'scrumptious' quality - mouthwatering acidity and 'say hello!' tannins. It's a Bohemian at heart.

The exquisite wine crafted by the artisans at Unico Zelo has garnered a devoted following akin to that of a revered cult. Regrettably, its availability remains profoundly scarce, with each offering swiftly claimed by eager enthusiasts. Among their esteemed creations, the Unico Zelo Esoterico stands as a pinnacle, meticulously fashioned by the talented duo, Brendan and Laura Carter.

Neither solely white nor red, this enigmatic libation is often dubbed "orange wine," yet its creators simply refer to it as Esoterico. Infused with a tantalizing fusion of spices, exotic allure, and boundless vitality, the 2022 vintage embodies a harmonious blend. Comprising 50% Zibibbo sourced from the Riverland, intertwined with Gewürztraminer from Polish Hill River, Moscato Giallo, and a select parcel of Greco di Tufo hailing from vineyards nestled in the Riverland and Polish Hill River regions.
