Unico Zelo ‘Harvest’ 2017 Chardonnay

On the 7th day of Christmas, The Wine Gallery sent to me (thank you) a bottle of Unico Zelo ‘Harvest’ 2017 Chardonnay from SA’s Adelaide Hills in my wine advent calendar.

Unico Zelo Harvest Chardonnay 2017Yeah, so I did it. I had Chardonnay with my lunch today. Having a wine with lunch on a Friday back when I worked for someone seemed totally fine, however now I work for myself, from home, I’ve just never really done it.

Perhaps it was the 37-degree temperature that enticed me or the more likely scenario was that I knew this bottle was in the fridge.

The Harvest range from UZ is pretty special because half of the profits from the wines go back to the grape growers to help continue the strength of the vineyards.

This Chardy:

  • Is a blend of Chardonnay grapes from vineyards high up in the Adelaide Hills
  • Has no added yeast
  • Is a mixture of oak and stainless steel used

It went with my crispy skin salmon and salad perfectly.

In the glass, it’s a sunny golden yellow. It has toasty aromas with florals, smoky citrus and spiced pear. In the mouth, it’s round and smooth in texture with a sweet citrus grapefruit bite and a vanilla lemonade infused finish. It’s nearly impossible to stop at just one glass!

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy! #gifted #opinionsaremyown #tcweekdaywine

Grab a glass of wine and let me know what you think...
