    Winemaker Notes

    Cabernet Sauvignon is regarded as one of the most popular varietals worldwide. For Golden Kaan we have created a classic red wine which shows good varietal characteristics with upfront cherry fruit which is in perfect balance with oaky vanilla flavours, due to careful maturation in oak. Excellent follow-through on the palate where the soft/ripe tannins linger on the senses. The wine has good acid structure that balances well with the tannic structure and contributes to its elegant finish. Ready for immediate enjoyment but will mature well or up to 3 years. Ideal with ostrich steak, grilled rosemary-flavoured lamb, oxtail and steak.

    Golden Kaan, , South Africa
    Golden Kaan
    South Africa’s vineyards are mostly situated in the Western Cape near the coast. The traditional viticultural areas of the Cape Peninsula and surrounding regions have a mainly Mediterranean climate with warm, dry summers and good winter rainfall, ensuring the minimum amount of irrigation is needed.

    These weather and terroir conditions ensure sunspoiled grapes with worldwide acknowledgement, which are then used to produce full-bodied and unique wines like the ones of Golden Kaan. South Africa is a country that stimulates fantasies like no other: Glistening sunshine, fertile earth, a touch of adventure and a wildlife of unequalled splendor. Golden Kaan embodies all of these.

    Paso Robles

    View all wine

    Paso Robles has made a name for itself as a source of supple, fruity, and powerful wines. With 11 smaller sub-AVAs, there is quite a bit of diversity to be found in this inland portion of California’s Central Coast.

    This is mostly red wine country, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel standing out as the star performers. Other popular varieties include Merlot, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, and Rhône varieties both red and white. There is a fairly uniform tendency here towards wines that are unapologetically bold and opulently fruity, albeit with a surprising amount of acidity thanks to the region’s chilly nighttime temperatures.

    Cabernet Sauvignon

    View all wine

    A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon is sometimes referred to as the “king” of red grapes. It can be somewhat unapproachable early in its youth but has the potential to age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more at its best. Small berries and tough skins provide its trademark firm tannic grip, while high acidity helps to keep the wine fresh for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region (and in St-Emillion and Pomerol, where it plays a supporting role to Merlot). The top Médoc producers use Cabernet Sauvignon for their wine’s backbone, blending it with Merlot and smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot. On its own, Cabernet Sauvignon has enjoyed great success throughout the world, particularly in the Napa Valley, and is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and sought-after “cult” wines.

    In the Glass

    High in color, tannin, and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice, and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it's typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

    Perfect Pairings

    Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb, and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

    Sommelier Secrets

    Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
