River Sand is the lightest of Unico Zelo's excellent Fianos, a saline, savoury and nutty wine that'd be an easy contender for the "food wine" term if it didn't drink so well alone.
From The Winemaker
There isn't much we love more than a glass of white wine in the sun, where all you are looking for is something bright, textural and refreshing - with or without food. For us it's Riversand. From the remarkable organic Bassham Vineyards in Barmera, the heat of the Riverland brings the fun to this wine - and our 2021 rendition is still in fine form.
Lovely briney, vermouth-esque aromatics, plenty of wormwood and green olive under Riversand’s trademark whiffs of nectarine and a little grilled almond too. The slick, oily mouthfeel is there as always, but with a bit more check and balance this year. With the Riverland, it’s pretty easy for this wine to be fruit dominant, but even 2021 threw perfect balance the Riverland’s way. A lovely lemon juice-riddled salty acid line, before rolling into a wholemeal, toasty complexity. As refined an example of this wine as we’ve seen yet.
