Cabernet Sauvignon, a French wine that is one of the world's most widely recognised red wine grape varieties. It is grown in nearly every major wine producing country among a diverse spectrum of climates. Cabernet Sauvignon became internationally recognised through its prominence in Bordeaux wines where it is often blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. As a wine, Cabernet Sauvignon is known for its dark colour and full body. It is a dry wine and has a healthy level of tannin, which is why your mouth dries out when you sip it. Many people who drink Cabernet Sauvignon say they always pick up a taste of green pepper in the wine, along with cassis, and dark fruits such as cherries, along with hints of vanilla that comes from the wine ageing in the oak.
This kit produces 22.5L (30 bottles equivalent) of stunning Cabernet Sauvignon (5 gallon of red wine).
This kit is a 7 day wine kit so start the fermentation on day 1, it's finished by day 5, cleared and ready to drink by day 7. All the range use addbacks which go into the finished wine - this improves taste & bouquet.
Although it takes around 1 week to finish, we highly recommend leaving this wine for as long as possible for further maturation and to release its more complex flavours and to deepen them further.
You will need additional sugar for this kit.
This kit requires basic wine making equipment which can be found in the 'Starter Kits' section of our website.
