2019 Unkel 'Calypso' Petit Verdot Merlot
Sometimes you want something that's a bit bigger, a bit darker, or just something that isn't Pinot. 58% Petit Verdot, 42% Merlot. Same vineyards as above so all with organic fruit, hand harvested then destemmed. 5 days of skin contact with just 3 pump overs. Matured in all old French barriques. Through malo naturally over the winter, kept on gross lees until bottling unfiltered and unfined. Minimal sulphites added. This wine has great colour (from the PV), dark berry fruits, spices, and nice soft tannins. It's pretty bloody pleasant with a chill too.
