Cabernet Sauvignon

De alcoholvrije rode wijn Cognato Red
Cabernet Sauvignon is a globally respected red grape variety, famous for its deep color, high tannin content and aromas of blackcurrant, tomato leaf, dark spice and cedarwood. Depending on the region and winemaking methods, Cabernet Sauvignon can range from lush and fruity to savory and smoky. It is a grape that goes well with rich, grilled meat dishes and dishes with a lot of flavor because of its rich taste and high tannin content. Cabernet Sauvignon wines are known for their ability to age well, developing richer textures and more complex flavors over time.

The Cognato Red , a South African wine made from the Cabernet Sauvignon grape, reflects the versatility of this grape by offering a beautiful tannin structure with a hint of the smokiness that characterizes an authentic braai. This wine embodies the powerful structure and finesse that Cabernet Sauvignon wines can offer, offering a unique expression of the South African terroir.

The combination of the classic characteristics of Cabernet Sauvignon with the unique South African winemaking style results in the Cognato Red, which makes an interesting comparison with traditional Cabernet Sauvignon wines from other parts of the world. This illustrates how local influences and winemaking techniques can influence the expression of a grape variety, while preserving the grape's inherent qualities.
