Le Riche

Stellenbosch

Based along the lower foothills of the Helderberg mountains in Stellenbosch, Le Riche is regarded as one of the leading producers of ultra-premium Cabernet Sauvignon. Thanks to this noble grape’s thoroughbred genetics and impressive adaptability across varying terroir, the Le Riche family have dedicated their winemaking pursuit to crafting quality-focused Cabernet Sauvignon wines that are detailed in approach and reflective of the Stellenbosch region.

 

The Le Riche winemaking style is traditionally simplistic yet innovative, oriented around crafting Cabernet Sauvignon that is elegant, complex, and has excellent maturation potential. For this reason we exclusively source only the highest quality fruit from established grape growers.

 

Our vision is to craft the ultimate expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Stellenbosch winelands of South Africa.

2020 Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep garnet in colour. Inviting aromas of black cherry, plum and cassis are complemented by savoury undertones of black olives, hints of mint and cedar. On the palate, the wine is fruit forward mirroring the aromas. Firm tannins assist in creating a voluptuous mouthfeel which is balanced by a long, appetising finish. A classic Stellenbosch Cabernet.

Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2020

Classic Cabernet aromas of blackcurrants, black cherry and cassis. Brooding and dense yet showing great freshness on the nose. Lead pencil shavings and cedar aromas add to the overall sophistication and elegance. On entry the palate is rich, velvety and opulent yet remarkably fresh and linear showcasing black fruit, a creamy mouthfeel and dark chocolate finish. A deliciously firm, appetising acidity is balanced by round, structured tannins. A wine with a wonderfully long, complex finish showcasing great potential for maturation; A true investment. One of our best vintages yet!
