Originating in the French region of Bordeaux, Cabernet Sauvignon is a well-known red wine variety that grows well in diverse climates. Known for its intense red colour and full flavour, Cabernet Sauvignon frequently exhibits notes of cherry, blackcurrant, and faint green bell pepper undertones. Given its well-structured tannins, the red wine has a robust and age-worthy character that will allow it to develop gradually with time.
Grown on the Rico vineyards, the red soil of Krishna Valley produces Cabernet Sauvignon grapes with high tannin content and distinctive notes of black currant, spices, and vanilla from French oak barrels. In addition to adding rich colour, the grape’s thick skin shields the fruit, allowing it to withstand different vineyard conditions.
With Cabernet Sauvignon, oak ageing is a popular technique that adds flavours of vanilla, cedar, and perhaps a bit of tobacco to enhance its complexity. The resultant red wine goes incredibly well with heavy foods like aged cheeses and grilled meats. It can be best served at 16 – 18°C along with grilled veg, goat cheese, grilled mutton, and red meat.
Since it reflects the terroir and the winemaker’s expertise, Cabernet Sauvignon has come to represent power and elegance, enticing wine connoisseurs. From the Rico vineyards, a well-crafted Rico Cabernet Sauvignon is a testament to the grape’s enduring legacy in the world of fine wines.
