Persephone Cabernet Franc 2017
Feiring Line Wine Society: February 2019 Selection
From Alice: Rachel Signer, who is producing the Pipette magazine, fell in love, kind of moved to Australia and gave birth to some wines. Here’s an example of her first effort from some non-certified organic vineyards that also serve Anton van Klopper. She destemmed after maceration which sounds a little messy to me, but I have to admit it’s rather delicious. There’s a touch of fizz, almost bringing it to the border of a pet’nat. Almost. It’s really enjoyable, with gentle tannins and significant berry and a nice solid finish. All in balance at 10.8 ABV. Crack it socially, informally, with friends.
