Fourth Wall Wines - “Meta” Cabernet Franc 2019
Made at Pearl Morissette in Jordan, it’s everything I’m looking for from this grape in Ontario: bright aromatics, crunchy fruit, graceful power and savoury, succulent texture. Combining the brawn of Beamsville’s Redfoot Vineyard and elegance of Grimsby’s Il Vigneto, the result is the style we’re meant to chase in Niagara. The two sites were co-fermented wild before being aged in demi-muids for 18 months of integration. Not a glou-glou wine, this is meditative and built for the next decade.
