Le Riche
Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, 2002
12 (2 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.

Loads of wonderfully ripe black fruits are interspersed with roasting spices in the aromatics of the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve. This broad, deep, medium-bodied wine is crammed with flavors reminiscent of candied dark berries, asphalt, mint, and spices. Its long, seamless finish exhibits copious quantities of fine, supple tannin.’ Pierre Rovani, Wine Advocate 89/100 (2005)

A 2004 review of the first five vintages of this bastion of classical elegance yielded 97 & 01 as favourites, worthy of cellar space. Current O2 (4*), reflecting the vagaries of a lighter harvest, is easier, for drinking while 01 – still a concentrated sleeper evolves & grows.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2006, 4*
