Portuguese Cabernet Sauvignon, while not a native variety, has adapted well to the country’s diverse regions. Known for its thick skin and resistance to various climates, Cabernet Sauvignon yields deeply coloured, tannic wines that age well. In Portugal, these wines tend to offer a complex bouquet of blackcurrant, blackberry, and often a hint of green bell pepper. They also exhibit the variety’s signature full body and firm tannic structure, making them ideal for pairing with hearty dishes. Portuguese Cabernet Sauvignon, often found in blends with local varieties, adds an international touch to Portugal’s rich winemaking tapestry.
