Cabernet sauvignon and Cabernet franc were planted already shortly after our founding year of 1900 because of the southern location of Kurtatsch. The warm microclimate and porous soils promote the physiological maturity of these noble grape varieties.
Cabernet sauvignon gives KIRCHHÜGEL its fruity blackcurrants and blackberries, while Cabernet franc brings in the spicy herbal aromas (pepper and mint). A fine nerve of acidity runs through its muscular body giving it sinew and impressive stamina in the bottle. The patience of waiting will be rewarded after long bottle ageing with fascinating tertiary aromas of cedar wood and suede. KIRCHHÜGEL: the sacred one.
