The Investigator Vertical Pack

The Investigator Vertical Pack

The Investigator vertical pack includes one each of our 2008, 2013 and 2015 flagship Cabernet Francs.  Each vintage unique, this is a one-of-a-kind way to explore all that this ancient Bordeaux wine variety offers.

  1. 2008 The Investigator Cabernet Franc95 points - James Halliday The Wine Companion; 92 points - Robert Parker The Wine Advocate.  "Jacques Lurton has always held a torch for cabernet franc, hence the plantings, and hence this wine. Still holds exceptional crimson hue; bright red fruits, bramble, and savoury tannins are in excellent balance, oak adding to the package." Drink to 2028.  James Halliday
  2. 2013 The Investigator Cabernet Franc.  96 points - James Halliday The Wine Companion. "A fragrant dark-berry bouquet with spice to the fore; the most striking aspect of the palate is the fine, yet firm, tannins woven throughout; most would guess an Old World origin, the fruit just part of a much bigger whole. Lovely sophisticated wine (and a perfect cork)".  Drink to 2038
  3. 2015 The Investigator Cabernet Franc.  95 points - James Halliday The Wine Companion "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".  Drink to 2041

Each pack is gift wrapped with tasting notes and complimentary shipping within Australia.
