Cabernet Sauvignon Wine

Cabernet Sauvignon is probably known as the most famous grape variety all around the world. It is often referred to as the noble grape and other varieties are often cloned from this versatile grape. No matter where Cabernet is grown it always has some very distinct and common characteristics. Deep strong colour, good tannin structure for ageing, medium acidity for balance and blackcurrant, tomato and dark spices as its flavour profile. DNA profiling carried out in California in 1997 has confirmed that Cabernet Sauvignon is a genetic combination of Bordeaux varieties Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc.

There are 2 reasons that Cabernet is so popular all around the world.

  1. The grape variety is super adaptable all over the world and handles most growing conditions better than any other variety.
  2. Also, despite diversity in regions, the characters of cabernet that consumers enjoy retain a high level of consistency. Economically this is extremely important for an industry ruled by mother nature.

While the most famous versions are undoubtedly found in Bordeaux and California it's refreshing to see significant high quality coming from emerging regions like Maipo in Chile, Coonawarra and Margaret River in Australia.
