Below I dive into the three categories that will quickly get you up to speed: Grape, Wine, and Pairing. Giving you all the knowledge on this wine, so you can impress your friends at your next dinner party. Enjoy!
Cross-bred with two red grapes, Norton and Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Doré is a white grape that makes a clear and crisp white wine. Though this may sound odd that both parents of Doré are black skinned grapes, this is not an unusual cross. Wine grapes are highly inbred, thus contain genes from many of their ancestors. Cabernet Sauvignon and Norton (again, the parents of Cabernet Doré) have a white grape parent, and together they made our white Cabernet Doré! Confused yet? This is a similar process as getting your eye color from your grandmother. It is all about recessive genes. Very interesting stuff!
The grape itself proves to grow well in regions like Kentucky, California, Missouri, and Illinois.
Designed to be enjoyed as a young wine, Cab Doré is fermented in stainless steel to preserve the youthful fruit. Cabernet Doré' holds the qualities similar to a dry Sauvignon Blanc, snappy and zesty at first, but finishes with a smoother aftertaste. It’s a vibrant creamy yellow with toasted fruit, herb and florals on the nose.
Keep it light and simple with our Cabernet Doré. Start with a light salad topped with goat cheese. Our younger vintage will pair well with a white fish, especially poached, sautéed or lightly grilled. Embrace a light pasta with this wine, particularly with a cream or seafood sauce. Avoid red meats and foods high in salt, Cab Doré pairs better with seafood and vegetarian dishes.
