Le Riche, Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml 2016South Africa, Stellenbosch
The backbone of the range, it is a wine that delivers all the qualities that a Le Riche Cab should. Supple, elegant and rich with layers of fruit, this is their expression of Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon. With fruit from the cool gravelly slopes facing False Bay to the rich red granitic soils around Stellenbosch, the wine gains its complexity by blending fruit from diverse terroirs. A wine that can be enjoyed younger or with several years of age.
'Matured for 24 months in French oak, 44% new. Red and black berries, violets and fresh herbs plus some pencil shavings on the nose. The palate, meanwhile, shows lovely pure fruit, bright acidity and fine tannins, the finish long and dry. A particularly elegant example of the variety.' – Christian Eedes, Prescient Cabernet Sauvignon Report 2019, 93/100
