Wines by Grape
Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the world’s most planted grape varieties and is, most famously, used in the wines of Bordeaux, France where it is vitally important to the classic wines of the Médoc. In Bordeaux it can be blended alongside other red varietals including Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot to produce truly world-class wines. Cabernet Sauvignon makes wines that are rich and deep coloured, with intense black fruit flavours of blackcurrants and black cherries. In general Cabernet Sauvignon produces wines with lots of tannins and is often blended with the Merlot grape to produce a softer finish.
Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in many wine producing countries and performs particularly well in Australia, California and Chile.
