Unico Zelo is a small winery, run by the youthful Brendan and Laura Carter. Still only in their mid-twenties, this dynamic couple have been making wine under the Unico Zelo label for the last seven years, taking their inspiration from their intense passion for their native land. The wines are crafted from varieties that require minimal intervention, both in the vineyard and the winery. The in-depth study of vineyard sites in South Australia has led them to focus on Italian varieties, such as Fiano and Nero d’Avola which are perfectly suited to being dry-farmed in the arid Riverland as well as Dolcetto, Nebbiolo and Barbera which flourish in the inland, continental climate of the Clare Valley. These delicious and unique wines combine sustainability and drinkability to great effect.

Sourced from vineyards in Australia's Clare Valley, the Unico Zelo Truffle Hound is a red wine blend of native Italian grapes Barbera and Nebbiolo. The wine pairs ripe fruit flavours with the crisp acidity that one would expect from these northern Italian varieties. Up-front blackberry and bitter cherry fruit gives way to notes of dried herbs and anise. The finish is dry and persistent, with a lightly tannic grip.
