Cabernet Sauvignon’s spiritual home, and perhaps its true origin, is in Bordeaux, where it tends to be blended with other varieties such as Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Australian Cab Savs are commonly made as single varietal wines, with Coonawarra and Margaret River heading most wine lovers’ lists of Cabernet regions.
The aroma has lifted fresh berry fruits including dark cherry and plum with a hint of oak. Medium to full body with complex flavours of juicy ripe cherries and plums with a hint of spice leading to a soft velvety finish. Winery Note
