Cabernet Sauvignon

Pronounced: Cab-err-nay So-vin-yon

"Sophisticated drinking, ultimately delicious"

The show stopper grape variety for elegance in a glass.

Cabernet Sauvignon makes its true home in the much-fancied Bordeaux region of France. Australia might not have historical chateaus dotting the landscape, but we make up for it in the flavour of our wines. [yellow tail] makes a superb Cab Sav with concentrated dark fruits and the kind of satiny mouth feel that makes for really easy drinking. But it's not all about simplicity, the quality fruit in this wine adds depth of character and added flavour.

Aroma:
Whoa! Absolutely Cabernet here. It has that hint of leafiness and herbs then loads of black currant with a hint of cocoa.
Flavour:
With more blackcurrant, some mocha and a suggestion of liquorice, this is classic Cabernet in flavour too. It’s concentrated but not massive, slippery but silky and shows enough tannin to keep the wine in shape without being mouth puckering. Delicious red wine. Serve with pasta with red sauce, braised lamb shoulder or thick-cut beef scotch fillet.

The Grape

Cabernet Sauvignon is known for its dark berry fruit flavours and hallmark herb/spice/leafy complexity.
