Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied red wine that tastes best at room temperature between 15-18 degrees Celsius. However, you can serve it between 10-15 degrees Celsius if you prefer to consume it chilled. It is not recommended to serve Cabernet Sauvignon too cold as it can cause the flavours to flatten.

What does Cabernet Sauvignon taste like?

When is the best time to drink Cabernet Sauvignon?

However, some of the most popular Cabernet Sauvignon wines in Australia are Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon, Penfolds Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon, and Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

Why is Cabernet Sauvignon popular?

Cabernet Sauvignon is a popular wine worldwide due to its versatility, full-bodied flavour, and high tannins. It pairs well with many foods, such as red meat, lamb, and gourmet cheeses. Additionally, Cabernet Sauvignon can age for many years, making it a favourite of wine collectors worldwide.

What is the difference between Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc?

Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc are often confused, but they are two different grape varieties. Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied red wine known for its high tannins, bold flavours, and rich texture. On the other hand, Cabernet Franc is a lighter-bodied red wine that is less tannic and has a subtle aroma of strawberries and raspberries.

What should you pair with Cabernet Sauvignon?

Cabernet Sauvignon pairs exceptionally well with rich, hearty dishes. Its bold flavours complement red meats like steak and lamb and aged cheeses. The wine's tannins also work harmoniously with the fats in these foods. Additionally, dark chocolate and dishes featuring herbs like rosemary and thyme can enhance the overall tasting experience.  For a more detailed exploration of perfect pairings, check out our blog.
