Cabernet Sauvignon is without a doubt one of the world’s most popular red wine varieties, with a name so ubiquitous it is familiar even to individuals that have never seen a bottle of wine, much less tasted one. This is all the more impressive when considering Cab Sauvignon’s bold taste and dry nature. However, this varietal seems to be one that was destined to become a universal classic, and you will be hard pressed to find a red wine drinker that does not take it upon themselves to buy Cabernet Sauvignon for their own collections.
Before you buy Cabernet Sauvignon wine online for yourself, it is important to learn a little bit about the history of this celebrated beverage. Though the name clearly states the varietal’s origins, it was hotly debated for a long time whether Cabernet Sauvignon was actually born through accidental cross-breeding of a red Cabernet Franc and a white Sauvignon Blanc.
While the accidental aspect remains up for debate, university researchers in the 1990s seemed to prove this was indeed the heritage of the venerable Cabernet Sauvignon, and the result has been legendary. Incredibly easy to grow, these thick-skinned grapes offered a healthy level of tannins, a full-bodied wine and a medium level of acidity.
As if that wasn’t enough, our organic Cabernet Sauvignon ages well, with oak barrels bringing out spectacular new flavours. With its bountiful tannins, medium acidity and an alcohol content generally above 13.5%, we heartily recommend pairing Cabernet Sauvignon with a favourite dish.
