The prestigious Gravel Quarry Cabernet Sauvignon is made from the best Cabernet Sauvignon grown at Glen Carlou, each year the vineyards which produce fruit of great depths and concentration are elected.

Cabernet Sauvignon may be king but he is not the perfect monarch. Bordeaux’s rise to the most classic and renowned wine region was certainly not built on Cabernet Sauvignon alone and for many years even included Shiraz. But there is no mistaking Cabernet’s blackcurrant scent or the ability to produce wines of great longevity. Like many monarchs, Cabernet Sauvignon is thick - skinned, providing all the character of colour, tannin and aroma. Cabernet Sauvignon is also versatile, colonising many of the world’s vineyards capable of producing light and elegant through to dark, rich and powerful wine.
