2020 Poppelvej 'Zoonotic Spillover' Mourvèdre
This is super exciting juice from Danish duo Uffe and Jens Deichmann, two brothers making fine, detailed natural wines in McLaren Vale. If you ever need to say the name of this wine out loud the winery is pronounced Popp-el-vay. No idea what a Zoonotic Spillover is though. Sorry.
This is one of their richest reds but all things are relative. You certainly won't be seeing anything overripe here, no oak either. Good Mourvèdre usually has a bit of a charcuterie flavour and it's here buried under some delicious cherry fruit and mixed in with some herbs.
