The Islander Estate Vineyards

2008 The Investigator

2008 The Investigator

The first vintage of The Investigator as 100% Cabernet Franc.  2008 was characterised by low rain followed by a long, dry ripening season with significant heat events. As a result, our Cabernet Franc matured quickly and was picked with higher baumé and lower acidic content than normal. In keeping with our winemaking philosophy, despite these unusual conditions, we left the wines with their natural balance. 

The result was quite interesting, the wine is opulent, rich with very soft tannins. It has retained this amazing richness over time and it still drinks perfectly 10 years later.
