Andy's Tasting Notes

An enticing contrast of impressive concentration and beautiful refinement.  Seamless and precise with elegant depth and gorgeous drinkability.  Not that the 2016 vintage was bad, but this 2017 vintage is a superior step up.

Grapes are sourced from vineyards in the Simonsberg, Jonkershoek and Helderberg wards. Each vineyard block is separately vinified for one year, blended and subsequently aged for another year.

Producer Info

Le Riche is a family run estate founded by Etienne Le Riche in 1996. Situated close to the historic town of Stellenbosch, the winery is perched on the slopes of the Heldeberg Mountain and surrounded by the majestic Hottentots Holland Mountain range.

Le Riche are known as ‘Cabernet Masters’ and rightly so. They select grapes from the best possible Stellenbosch terroirs to craft top quality Cabernets with superb cellaring potential.

These wines are elegant and classy with fine grained tannins and subtle oak integration, and while not aiming to be Bordeaux replicas, they do have much in common with the balance and poise sometimes found in top Margaux.
