Airlie Bank 2015 Franc

What a lot of vinous fun for a minimal financial outlay. This is a 2015 Yarra Valley red; a rarity in that it is made from the cabernet franc grape. It is crafted using just a hint of seasoned oak but is fruit driven and charming, aromatic and supple. There were minimal additions and no fining and this is chock-full of juvenile charm. Enjoy this as you would a vin de soif  like Beaujolais. A really lovely wine from the team at Punt Road that would be a pleasure to quaff over summer. $20.
