The sequel to our Chardonnay Trail, this Cabernet Sauvignon equivalent is the perfect way to deepen your wine discovery journey in the Margaret River region. If Chardonnay is the queen of the grapes in Margaret River, then Cabernet Sauvignon is her king. It is this grape variety that has single handedly put Margaret River on the international wine map and enabled the industry to develop to where it is today.
Cabernet Sauvignon (Cab Sav) is a grape that produces a rich wine that cellars magnificently. Part of the beauty of Margaret River is its heavenly Mediterranean climate. The long summers filled with warm days are complimented by a cool sea breeze which keeps grapes in tip-top condition until harvesting. What this means for you is plenty of subtle, refined Cabernet Sauvignon with a velvety tannin structure and juicy blackberry characteristics.
It’s time to get tasting! No matter how long you have in the region – be it a day, a weekend or a week, this Cabernet Trail is the skeleton from which your wine education in the region can build. Smash it out in order for a mammoth day of Cab Sav, or pick and choose pieces of it to cover at your leisure if you have more time. In the words of the wise: “Life is a Cabernet old chum, so come to the Cabernet”.
