Airlie Bank Franc 2018

"Bottled whilst fresh and bursting with juvenile charm," says the back label. I'm not sure what more to say really - this is a beauty.

Winemaker Tim Shand has a tremendous grip on this variety. It's oozing cool with captivating personality as it struts with streetwise appeal.

Violets and purple flowers, blue and purple fruit pulsate through its veins. Touches of clove, twigs and earth play a neat supporting role, but this is all about juicy fruit and no oak. Run to this and feel its vibrant energy.

Drink now to three years.
