2018 Unkel 'Calypso' Merlot

Mornington Peninsula, Victoria

Although the fruit has been conventionally grown, Rob Burley (winemaker) has kept to natural winemaking principles. A 2 week skin ferment, pressed to old oak and small amounts of sulphur added between fermentation and bottling. Unkel's wines toe the line nicely between conventional and contemporary wines, so if this is your first foray into naturals, dig in to this Merlot.
