Cabernet clone tasting

DPIRD Research Scientist Richard Fennessy will be delivering workshop tastings featuring 13 Cabernet Sauvignon clones and selections. These wines from the 2022 vintage were produced from a single trial block planted in Margaret River using a standardised small-lot winemaking procedure. Viticultural data such as key phenological stages, yield, bunch and berry weights were collected over the growing season will also be presented at the tasting.

This tasting provides growers and winemakers with a unique opportunity to explore the flavour spectrum and tannin profile of a number different Cabernet Sauvignon clones and selections sourced from a single block harvested at similar maturities.
