CABERNET SAUVIGNON is the world's most widely planted grape variety. Grown in a wide range of climates and regions, at its core, it's is a full-bodied wine with dark fruit flavours and savoury tastes ranging from black pepper to bell pepper depending on region. Cabernet Sauvignon from New World countries is often a touch fruitier than in the Old, but no matter where it is produced it is also widely used to enhance a variety of blends.
"Lovely aromas of stone and dark fruits. Medium to full body with blackberry, spice, and walnut character. Pretty finish. Energetic."
James Suckling, 2016
MENDOZA is located on a high-altitude plateau at the edge of the Andes Mountains and is the largest wine region in Argentina. Responsible for roughly 70% of the country's annual wine production, the French grape variety Malbec has its New World home in the vineyards of Mendoza, producing red wines of great concentration and intensity. The first vines were planted by Jesuit priests in the mid-16th Century, borrowing techniques from the Incas and Huarpes. Today the regions of Lujan de Cuyo, Maipu and the Uco Valley are home to some of the biggest names in Argentinian wine.
