WINEMAKER: Uffe Deichmann
REGION: Adelaide Hills, SA
VARIETY: Pinot Noir
Sourced from the K1 Vineyard in Kuitpo, in the southern part of the Adelaide Hills where warm days are mitigated by cooling winds off the Fleurieu Peninsula. Organically farmed, though not certified.
Handpicked, half was direct pressed & the juice was poured over the remaining wholebunch fruit & wild fermented, semi-carbonic, foot stomped daily. Aged on full lees in neutral barriques for 5 months, racked and bottled. Unfined & unfiltered.
Pronounced "pop-el-vei", vej is the Danish word for street and poppel træ is Danish for poplar tree. Poppelvej is the street of poplars, named after the street in Denmark where sommelier-turned-winemaker Uffe grew up.
