Tasting Notes

Fresh, vibrant aromas of raspberry and blackcurrant are supported by hints of cedar and white pepper.
The aromas are mirrored on the palate with succulent, juicy fruit and mouth-filling flavours of red
cherry and plum. Fine, chalky tannins enhance the silky mouthfeel and long, delicate finish. The
Cabernet Sauvignon adds body and complexity whilst the Cinsaut brings great perfume and
accessibility to this versatile wine.

Producer details

Le Riche is a family run estate founded by Etienne Le Riche in 1996. Situated close to the historic town of Stellenbosch, the winery is perched on the slopes of the Heldeberg Mountain and surrounded by the majestic Hottentots Holland Mountain range. Le Riche are known as ‘Cabernet Masters’ and rightly so. They select grapes from the best possible Stellenbosch terroirs to craft top quality Cabernets with superb cellaring potential. These wines are elegant and classy with fine grained tannins and subtle oak integration, and while not aiming to be Bordeaux replicas, they do have much in common with the balance and poise sometimes found in top Margaux.

In the vineyard

Grapes were carefully selected and hand-picked from vineyards located in Firgrove, Jonkershoek,
Helderberg, Bottelary and Raithby.

In the winery

The wines were fermented separately until dry in traditional open
concrete tanks with regular manual plunging. After malolactic fermentation in tank, the components
were transferred to French oak barriques for 12 months maturation. After blending, the finished wine
was aged a further 8 months in barrique and foudre. No fining and minimal filtration.

Food Recommendations

Ideally paired with a meaty pasta dish and richer stews.
