Airlie Bank is the younger, cooler and more flirty sibling to Punt Road wines. Owned by the Napoleone family and headed by winemaker Tim Shand, Punt Road and Airlie Bank are established names in the Yarra Valley region.
A wine designed with intention to drink young, this Cabernet Franc has been made in a rather rustic style in big, old oak - and is unfined and unfiltered (maintaining the integrity of the fruit in all its glory!). This red is juicy and seductive - a party of flavours, from luscious big fruits, licorice and herbs, to cloves and a heck of a lot of earthiness. Bound to keep you intrigued throughout, start to finish!
