Le Riche Richesse
Regarded as one of the leading ultra-premium producers of Cabernet Sauvignon, their vision is to craft the ultimate expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Stellenbosch Winelands of South Africa. Founded and managed by the Le Riche Family, they exclusively select and source only the highest-quality fruit, from unique vineyards, grown by long-term, established farmers. At the core of this is an inherent knowledge and respect of terroir, in particular the soil, and a winemaking ethos that is traditionally simplistic yet innovative.
Raised in older 225L oak for 12 months, the components are then blended and matured in 225L, 600L and 4,500L older oak barrels for a further 8 months
Aromas of fresh plums and red cherries, balanced with a touch of oak on the nose. Juicy mouth filling flavours of red berries are supported by a fine, silky tannin structure and a rounded long finish. The Cabernet Sauvignon component adds body and complexity whilst the Cinsaut brings great perfume and accessibility to this versatile wine.
