Grape Varietal & Region: Alluvium is made exclusively from the Fiano grape variety, an ancient and indigenous grape native to Southern Italy. Unico Zelo sources the Fiano grapes for this wine from selected vineyards in the Adelaide Hills region of South Australia. The cool climate and diverse soils of the region contribute to the wine's distinctive character.
Taste Profile: Lemongrass, lime-leaf, guava, but there is that incredible flinty, reductive whiff that is always here when the wine is in peak form. As you may pick up - it is in peak form. So much grapefruit and quartz charging down the middle of the palate, with bits of jasmine and nectarine trailing in its wake. I don’t think we’ve captured the Birdwood soil profile so well in a wine before. You could chew on this acid for days. Alluvium feels special this year.
Winemaking Process: The Fiano grapes for Alluvium are carefully handpicked and gently pressed to extract the purest expression of the fruit. The juice is then fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures to preserve the vibrant flavors and freshness of the variety. The wine undergoes a short maturation period on lees, adding complexity and texture to the final product.
