Airlie Bank Franc 2017

One of my more favourite grapes is Cabernet Franc. This here is 100% whole bunch.

Bramble and spice, dried herb perfume, aniseed and redcurrant. Light to medium bodied, spicy and sappy, nice little drag of grainy tannin, a bit of sour cherry and cranberry acidity, and a pleasingly bitter finish. Refreshingly adult, yet playful.
