If anywhere in the world could make the freshest, zippiest style of Red - you'd expect it to be in the middle of the desert. Hailing from some of the most ancient soils on earth - The Riverland, is a complete underdog region that epitomises what it is to craft fine wine on the edge. Richred earth, sandy soils covering limestone. Challenging, avant-garde - and oneof the most exciting wines we've crafted to date. We're intensely passionate about Nero d'Avola andit's clear potential in the warm, sun-drenched spots of Australia. The insane water-efficiency of this variety coupled with no additionsin the vineyard or winery (save for a small component of SO2 at bottling) displaysthe potential for this variety to craft succulent, juicy, aromatic andsupremely refreshing wine. A touch of ancient vine Zibibbo lifts the aroma into supreme smashability. Fresh. A.F. You've been warned.
*Big Love to the No Mafia crew, who in 2018 collaborated with us to produce the most tasty thing to ever have come out of Unico Zelo: Nero Z - it was so damn popular our previously named 'The River' Nero evolved hand-in-hand with a dash of Zibibbo to become 'Fresh A.F.' in honour of their blood, sweat and tears - oh...and the fact folks wouldn't stop hounding us for it!
