About this Item

Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, 2010
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
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.
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.

Critics Ratings

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*
