Unico Zelo True Blue 2021 (Vegan Friendly)
Riverland, Langhorne Creek and Adelaide Hills, Australia
Grenache does the heavy lifting, a variety we haven’t dived into much as it’s far from the underdog varieties we typically use. Still, after working with some 1940s vines in the Riverland, we’ve become enamoured with this drought-hardy variety. Touriga Nacional from the mighty Langhorne Creek is our next heavy hitter in the blend. It adds a rich, ironstone drive full of ripe black fruit and black olive tapenade. We’ve pieced the puzzle together with small doses of our beloved Nero D’avola, some lovely Adelaide Hills Syrah (one of the best places to grow it in the country), and a new one for us, Montepulciano, with a lively spicy finish!
