Cadus Tupungato Appellation Cabernet Sauvignon
This product is currently sold out.
Cadus is a perfectly formed winery near Tupungato, in the shadow of the Andes Mountains, within the Uco Valley. This high-altitude region has quickly built a reputation as the home of premium Mendozan wines and the Cadus range is no exception. The soil profiles and compositions within the Uco Valley vary within short distances, allowing for different grape varieties and resulting in wines styles with unique characteristics.
With vineyards in the best sites in the Valley (namely Gualtallary, Vista Flores and Agrelo in Lujan de Cuyo), Cadus wines are classic in style but with a very modern twist thanks to the vision of winemaker Santiago Mayorga (Young Winemaker of the Year 2017) who is quickly forging a reputation for bright, lifted expressions of wine from the region!
Cadus Tupungato Appellation Cabernet Sauvignon wine is a cabernet for purists. Very rich, with deep cassis and blackcurrant fruit, this wine is a full bodied yet wonderfully elegant cabernet. The palate displays great purity of fruit with gentle spice from the French oak which helps frame the wine rather than overpower it. The finish is long and fresh with great acidity and balance. Excellent with juicy steak or lamb but also fabulous at the end of the meal with firm cheeses.
