Blueridge Cabernet Sauvignon

This is a wine with an attractive deep ruby red colour. Its nose is extremely intense with a charming bouquet of flavours, predominantly ripe fruits of the forest, particularly blackcurrant and raspberry. There is also a hint of vanilla and soft oak, which comes from the way the wine was matured in small barriques. The taste is very complex, with a strong beginning and lasting presence.

This wine is a perfect accompaniment to rich and spicy dishes, red meats, pasta and cheeses and at 13 lv. a bottle it is a wine you can present with pride at any occasion.

 

 

 

 

The Grape

Cabernet Sauvignon is a renowned red wine grape grown in a variety of climates. It originated from southwestern France in the 17th century where it was cultivated by crossing Cabernet franc with Sauvignon blanc. During the majority of the 20th century; it was the world's most widely planted premium red wine grape.

This grape is easy to produce because of its thick skin and hardy vines, which are resistant to frost and rot. A noted trait of this grape is its distinct compatibility with oak, either during barrel ageing or the fermentation process. Oak has the effect of softening the grape's naturally high tannins whilst creating unique wood flavours of vanilla, spice, black current and tobacco.
