Cabernet Sauvignon

Widly Planted with a plump body this is a popular black grape. While many grape varieties are known for their friendly fruit aromas, cabernet sauvignon's success as a fine wine lies in its complex flavours that have the potential to develop deliciously in bottle over time. This grape ages really well and on its own its a winner but it also goes well in the worlds favouritely blended wines - Bordeaux or in Australia the Shiraz. AUSTRALIAN CAB SAV: Margaret River, in Western Australia, enjoys a comparatively cool, maritime-influenced climate, not unlike Bordeaux and produces elegant and age-worthy wines. The combination of finesse, acidity, freshness, alcoholic strength and red fruit flavours gives a complex and vibrant wine, particularly so in a country renowned for its high temperatures. South Australia is the heavyweight wine state, producing most of the country's wine and boasting some of its oldest vines. The dry, hot climate ripens grapes fully, making bold, dense and concentrated wines. The Barossa Valley has a rich viticultural history with patches of bush-trained vines, many more than 100 years old. The style of cabernet produced here contrasts greatly with that of Margaret River, with higher alcohol wines that are bold, full-bodied and rich in red and black fruits. Coonawarra is one of the country's leading cabernet regions. The terra rossa soil is famed for producing wines with an intense flavour and structure. The best wines are typically fragrant and fresh, with tobacco aromas and ripe cassis fruit.
