This is the first vintage of Persephone Wines, made with organically farmed (not certified) grapes from the same growers that Anton Van Klopper of Lucy M Wines works with in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia, and NO SO2 ADDED. The following notes were provided by the winemaker, Rachel Signer.
The fruit was absolutely beautiful and perfectly ripe. After the initial maceration, the berries were coming off the stems on their own, and the stems tasted quite green, so I separated them by hand and only pressed the berries. I love the aromas of this wine: ripe black cherries and forest floor. This bottling of Cab Franc is from one 300L barrel of free run juice, siphoned off the fermenting fruit before pressing. This is a wine to have alongside pizza, hearty vegetable dishes, or roast chicken or pork.
