Uffe Deichmann of Poppelvej Wines makes a lot of different wines. All of them are really, really good. The fruit from this comes from his tinkering with Mourvedre for his much loved rose, Dead Ohio Sky. Zoonotic Spillover refers to the transferral of pathogens (not so sexy), but here it applies more to the fact that after years of nailing the rose, it was time to transfer the fruit to the full blown red. Smokey, savoury, full of woodland fruits and herbs, it’s such a fun little wine.
