Meet Airlie Bank by Punt Road Cabernet Franc 100 % whole bunch Cabernet Franc blended and bottled in its youth to capture its juvenile vibrancy.

This is not a polished wine, this is a rustic wine made in big, old oak, not fined or filtered. First contact is a wall of tannin that surrenders to a sweet kernel of explosive gooey fruit at the centre.

Near perfect conditions in 2015 with a cool January and warm spells in February and March allowed for gradual maturation, great acid retention, and good crop with even ripeness. Phenolic maturity (brown seeds/stems) was spot on, and we took the opportunity to experiment with skin contact on whites and more whole bunch use in reds. While it wasn’t the easiest year, it was certainly the most exciting, and wines from this vintage are showing great vitality and aging potential.

We call this smashability with interest.
