Brown Brothers Cienna
Cienna is an exciting new grape variety bred by the CSIRO Plant Industry by crossing Sumoll, a grape variety from Spain, with Cabernet Sauvignon. Sumoll has its origins in the Catalonia region of Spain and is highly suitable for the type of warm, dry growing conditions found in many of Australia’s grape growing regions. Cabernet Sauvignon is widely regarded as the King of red grape varieties. Its origins lie in the famed Chateau country of Bordeaux in the south-west of France, where it is the major component in the esteemed red wines of the Medoc. This new grape variety combines the best attributes of both parents, producing high quality grapes adapted for Australian conditions.
