Vivino's Regional Styles

South African Cabernet Sauvignon

The South African wine industry has pushed to make Cabernet Sauvignon their flagship grape in the last 25 years.

The vintners pushed to try to make a more distinctly juicy and ripe Cabernet than they first created, and nowadays you can expect a lot of dark fruit, a little savoriness, cedar and spicy notes.

Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted red grape in South Africa. Winemakers often bottle at 100% Cab, but it is common to see Bordeaux-style blends and the Australian method of blending with Shiraz.

Some of the first Cabernet Sauvignons in South Africa were planted in cool climates and resulted in them having a distinct “green” flavor, which has divided Cabernet drinkers for years.

South African Cabernet Sauvignon isn't dissimilar from many other full-bodied reds. Pair it with dark meats, steak and roasts.
