Cabernet Sauvignon – distinctive vigour

The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes feature character and vigour which is why they deliver distinctive wine. It is easy to recognise a Cabernet Sauvignon. The red wine grape gives off a scent of herbs and makes for the typical taste of blackcurrant with aromas of mint and green pepper. The wine is strong and rich in tannins. Development in oak gives the wine vanilla and cedar notes. Cabernet Sauvignon originates from the left Bordeaux side, yet the grape also delivers excellent, if not the best, New World wines. A spontaneous cross of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc created this variety which is famous worldwide. The cross is also a reason why Cabernet Sauvignon’s scent can be of only one parent as well as of both parents. Even though the grape is one of the most important and most cultivated grape varieties, it only gained its status when it became popular in France at the turn of the 18th century.

Back to the Overview

Cabernet Sauvignon Needs Time for Ripening

A Cabernet Sauvignon needs a lot of time to develop; this is true for the grape on the wine slopes as well as the wine itself. It is therefore mainly suited for warm climates that benefit the ripening process. Generally, Cabernet Sauvignon is harvested some weeks after Merlot grapes. The finished wine matures further for a long time; it develops its special taste in the wine lovers’ cellars. A Cabernet Sauvignon captivates with its structure and fine aromas, which can only fully flourish after some time.

Blends with Cabernet Sauvignon and Excellent Rosé Wine

A Cabernet Sauvignon delivers the most premium wines. This is true for pure wines as well as blends with other varieties. It gains in blends with Shiraz and Merlot. The grape variety is also suited for an aromatic rosé. Since the 20th century, the variety is firmly positioned with South African winemakers. More than 10.000 hectares are cultivated with Cabernet Sauvignon. Yet, it also has competitors; Merlot and especially Shiraz are at least as popular amongst wine growers and lovers. Wherever the climate is suited though, winemakers will experiment with Cabernet Sauvignon in some kind of way.
