About this Item

2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve
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.

Critics Ratings

‘More elegant after the powerful 2010 (4.5*), yet still flavour-packed, 2011 showcases Cabernet Sauvignon’s complexity. Loganberries, violets, creamy plums, a fennel seed nuance, masterly oaked, polished and supple after 24 months French barrels, 70% new.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2015, 5*

‘Traditional shallow tanks. Inoculated yeast. Total time on skins 10-20 days. Usually 8% press wine. 7% new barriques. A little tough and austere. Savoury tobacco nose. A bit austere at the moment.’ - Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, 16.5+/20 (Jan 2015)
