August 15, 2019

Cabernet Sauvignon

The king of the red grapes in many people’s opinion, producing the world-renowned wines from Bordeaux’s left bank. The grapes are small, robust and thick skinned and they thrive in Argentina’s high-altitude vineyards. A significant diurnal temperature range slows down the ripening period of Argentinian Cabernet Sauvignon, ensuring an excellent balance of sugar and acidity, as well as soft, ripe tannins. Best expressions will ooze blackcurrant fruit, cassis, as well as herbaceous notes such as mint and liquorice.
