Harvesting Some Blue Grapes

Cabernet Sauvignon_1

All week this week, we have been busy at our Son Alegre finca harvesting our grapes. On Monday and Tuesday, we were busy harvesting our Malvasía grapes. Wednesday, it was time for our Chardonnay grapes, and yesterday we were busy harvesting our blue Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The Cabernet Sauvignon grape is of a medium size; it is of an irregular shape and not very compact. Its grains are small and spherical, and filled with quite a few seeds. The skin is thick and hard, making the grapes resistant to diseases, and the grape has a deep blue colour. The grapes’ flesh is firm and crisp wit a slightly acidy taste. We use this grape together with our Merlot and Syrah grapes to blend our fantastic rosé wines. Cheers.
