The Islander Estate Vineyards

2015 The Investigator

2015 The Investigator

Made from 100% Cabernet Franc, The Investigator demonstrates the true potential of this under-rated variety. It's a dark wine demonstrating the variety’s classic leanness, with firm brooding tannins. Dark colour and dark flavours like sarsaparilla and roasted beetroot with notes of dried herbs and fennel lending a medicinal edge. Offering balance and a composed structure across the palate. It will age beautifully too – ten, maybe fifteen years in the hold.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Hand-picked, destemmed into demi-muids for wild fermentation, 20% skins return, maceration continued until malo-lactic ferment was complete, the wine drained and the skins and stems passed through the hand basket press, matured for 2 years on lees in demi-muids. Jacques Lurton has always loved cabernet franc, and this spicy red-fruited wine, plus its diamond dust tannins, shows why. Halliday Wine Companion 2020
