Cabernet Sauvignon

The variety originates from France (Bordeaux). As far as popularity and genetic features, Chardonnay represents among white varieties what Cabernet Sauvignon represents among red varieties.

The variety is choosy as far as soil is concerned; it requires airy and warm vineyard soil. The choice of sites for Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be paid special attention to. In the Goriška Brda premium Cabernet Sauvignons are produced from the elevated southern sites where the sun shines all day through. It is a variety which matures late in the Goriška Brda. It is among the last varieties to be harvested.

Colour: It is of an intense red colour which combines with shades of violet and scarlet in a young wine.
Scent: Several families of scents are perceived: fruit (blackcurrant, olive), the scent of frying (smoke) and vegetal scents (cedar wood, green pepper, humus, truffle, tobacco, mint, chocolate etc.).
Taste: We become enthusiastic with the richness of tannins which enable a long life to the wine; over the years they turn soft and sweet. Its flavour is rich and full, leaving a lingering finish in the mouth.
