Named for the HMS Investigator that first carried Captain Flinders to Kangaroo Island, it carries Jacques Lurton’s vision to put Kangaroo Island on the world map of fine wine. A blend of 90% Cabernet Franc and 10% Malbec. The Investigator combines old and new world, strength and delicacy, power and elegance.
In 2000 Jacques Lurton planted an 11ha vineyard near Parndana in Kangaroo Island's heartland and christened the estate 'The Islander'. Close planting to restrict yields and increase concentration, fermentation in concrete tanks and old fashioned basket pressing plus quality fine-grained French oak all combine to produce wines with great structure and longevity.
