Winemaker's Notes:
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.

Delicious wine and customer service!

We didn't want to miss out on our fave wine (esoterico) this year, and wanted to make sure we had some on hand. The wine never disappoints.

There was a small hiccup with our order that was sorted out so quickly and generously, that now the wine we have tastes even better because of the fab people behind it!

Sorry you’re not into it

More for us! What a delight. Have worked a career around wine and have only flirted with this style. What an eye opener! Everything I look for in a summer wine. Beautiful mouthfeel and acidity. What a tannic finish to secure all the components and flavors on the palate. Everyone will ask, “what’s in the glass!?”

A great flavourful wine. Onto my second vintage - it just gets better and better.

Not good

Based on the advertising description of the wine, I was expecting a fruity, slightly sweet wine. Instead I got a sour tasting, almost undrinkable wine. My girlfriend who loves Sauvignon Blanc thought it was awful too. Unfortunately I purchased 12 bottles and ended up giving them away to family and friends, who also had negative comments about it, including “you got ripped off”. Very disappointing.

Hi Michael,

Thank you so much for your honest feedback and we are sorry to hear about your first experience with our wines.
Please kindly note, we make no reference to the wine being fruity or sweet in our product description and do describe it as "mouthwatering acidity" and a "more radical experience". We proudly do not make this wine for everyone and are sorry to hear of your disappointment.

For your next Unico experience your girlfriend might like to try our Harvest Sauvignon Blanc - a super varietal wine and very easy to drink. Should you like you wines slightly sweet, may I suggest you give our Panda Panda a crack - a tasty off-dry Fiano.
Once again it was not our intention to deceive you and we hope your next Unico experience is a great one!

Cheers,
Amanda + Unico Zelo Team
