One cultivar could produce distinct wines with typical properties and qualities different depending on its cultivated and its mesoclimatic conditions.
This work has been developed in several zones of Cádiz town: Arcos de la Frontera, Jerez de la Frontera (Gibalbín), Jerez de la Frontera (Macharnudo), Jerez de la Frontera (Torrecera) and Sanlúcar de Barrameda. It was selected parcels with Cabernet Sauvignon cultivars and with similar growing characteristics. It was studied mesoclimatic factors, physiological and agronomic behaviour of the plant and grape, must properties of 2006 and 2007 harvest over all the zones.
Our mesoclimatic factors results show difference amount zones studied, these are strongly influenced mainly by the proximity or distance to the cost. This effect modified physiological characteristic of the plant and grape, must and wine properties, and its obtained significant differences over the several zones studied. Besides, it’s observed differences amount wines related to zones characteristic.
