Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is globally recognised as one of the leading red grape varieties, synonymous with prestige and quality. Originating in Bordeaux, France in the 17th century, it is now grown in nearly every major wine-producing country across the world, in a diverse spectrum of climates from Canada's Okanagan Valley to chalky soil hills in Lebanon.

Bearing a relatively thick-skinned black berry, it stands out distinctively in various conditions; displaying tremendous resilience towards elements that commonly affect vineyards, such as frost or phylloxera. The hardy nature of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape makes it an appealing choice for both vineyard proprietors and wine connoisseurs alike.

The Cabernet Sauvignon grape is known for its high tannin content, hence, it results in wines that can be richly textured and intensely flavoured. The wine often exhibits dark fruit notes of blackcurrants and plums, complimented with secondary flavours like green bell pepper, mint and cedar, offering a palate of considerable depth and complexity. Many wine enthusiasts appreciate the ageing potential of Cabernet Sauvignon, as the flavours evolve beautifully over time, enhancing its allure as a truly superb red wine.

Cabernet Sauvignon commonly forms the backbone of many popular blends. In Bordeaux, the grape is often married with the fruity Merlot and the earthy Cabernet Franc to achieve an exquisite balance. Elsewhere, such as in parts of Australia, it is frequently blended with Shiraz to create wine with spice-laden character, coupled with the berry-fruit core.

Famed for its structured and full-bodied wines, Cabernet Sauvignon is an undisputed favourite not just among connoisseurs, but also among those with an occasional taste for a glass of red. Whether enjoyed on its own or paired with robust dishes like steak or strong cheeses, the Cabernet Sauvignon grape undoubtedly holds a charisma that is simply charming to the wine-drinking community.
