CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Cabernet Sauvignon has been an almost mystical grape varietal said toreach back through history to the original ancient Roman wines.

That was until 1996 when DNA mapping proved in the 17th century in south-west France a producer crossed Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc together to create Cabernet Sauvignon.

A stunning grape that is grown very successfully around the world each with distinctive flavour characteristics due to soil and temperatures.
