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.
Le Riche Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
Region: 46 % Firgrove, 26% Helderberg, 15 % Simonsberg, 13% Raithby
Classic Cabernet aromas of blackcurrants, brambles, dark cherry and hints of violet are supported by a vibrant nose. Lead pencil shavings and cedar aromas
compliment the overall complexity and sophistication. A powerful entry showcasing sweet, ripe black fruit balanced by full, structured tannins. A lingering finish and beautifully rich mouthfeel alongside appetising acidity reveals great maturation potential and an underlying elegance.
