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 22.5 (30 bottles equivalent) of stunning Cabernet Sauvignon (5 gallon of red wine) at around 11% ABV. This kit is a 7-day wine kit, and the wine will be ready after 7 days, however, we recommend leaving the wine for longer before drinking it so the flavours of the wine can deepen and mature.
The only additional ingredients you will require for this kit are sugar (4kg) and water.
You will need the basic winemaking equipment to make this kit which can be found in the 'Starter Kits' section of our website.
