Le Riche
Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, 2010
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Etienne le Riche, one of the founder members of the CWG, started Le Riche Wines in 1996 and his son, Christo le Riche, is now winemaker with his daughter, Yvonne le Riche, as brand manager. Le Riche Wines was created in order to ‘illustrate the nuances of Stellenbosch Cabernets as best as possible’.This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is the flagship of Le Riche and the very best expression of Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon with production of just 250 cases.

Undoubtably impressive, flattering & powerful 10, though without the harmonious elegance of something earlier vintages – big, balanced 15% alcohol relevant here. Ripe, intense flavours – more loganberry than blackcurrant. Gorgeously melting but firm tannins.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2014, 4.5*
