Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is the most famous red grape variety. It is the key component in the famous 'Claret' wines of Bordeaux in France where it is often blended with Merlot and, on occasion, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot in the famous 'Bordeaux Blend'. In the new world, it tends to grow best in the hot climates of California, Chile, Australia,  South Africa, Hawke's Bay and Waiheke in NZ and Argentina. You can expect beautiful black fruit flavours from a Cabernet Sauvignon-predominant wine.
