From the Cabernet Sauvignon specialists, Le Riche's Cab 2019 offers incredible value at under R 300. This quintessential Stellenbosch Cab is finely crafted, precise and bone-dry. Although approachable now, it also has 'a solid track record for beneficial cellaring,' writes Platter's Guide.

'Lovers of good value Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon are always impatient for the new release of Christo Le Riche's pan-regional cuvée. Youthful, vigorous and firm, with leafy fynbos, mint and blackcurrant flavours, sturdy, ageworthy tannins and scented 30% new wood. One to cellar. Drink 2023-30.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 93/100

'Aromas of cherries, plums and blackcurrants are well integrated with undertones of fresh herbs, cedar and a hint of nutmeg. Granular tannins create grip and freshness on the structured palate and follow through to a long lingering finish with juicy soft fruit. A classic Stellenbosch Cabernet.' – Winemaker

Producer information Le Riche was founded in 1996 by Etienne le Riche, one of the founding members of the Cape Winemakers Guild (CWG). Situated on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain, it is now run by Etienne’s son, Christo and daughter, Yvonne. Le Riche are known for premium red wines in a classic South African style. Grapes are selected from top growers in Stellenbosch, coming from mainly two soil types – decomposed granite soils and sandy gravel. The winemaking approach is traditionally simplistic, yet innovative.
