Airlie Bank Cabernet Franc 2015

"Juvenile charm" is a back label descriptor from winemaker Tim Shand and that about sums it up too. A bloody bucket load of fun right here and this would have to be the best Cabernet Franc you have ever put to your lips. Medium bodied (12% alc), I just can't stop topping up the glass.

Welcome to funky town thanks to the use of whole bunches. Skinsy aromas, think cloves, raspberry rope, violets and earth. Violet aromas just seem unstoppable. There's an ever so faint dab of oak and nibble of spice, but the fruit delivery here is so so smooth and ridiculously moreish.

Did I say twenty bucks?

Find it and drink now. Satisfaction guaranteed.
