Le Riche Chardonnay 2020

South Africa / Stellenbosch

Andy's Tasting Notes

It’s always been a top quality example of South African Chardonnay, but I think this latest vintage is their best yet.  Its trademark richness with peach, pineapple and lemon fruit is counter-balanced by a flinty, mineral crispness.  On the long finish there is a lovely creamy, butterscotch overtone. Overall there’s a vibrancy and freshness that makes you keep coming back for another sip!

This has a Burgundian-style personality with finesse, poise and delicacy.

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. With most of their wines sold domestically, it’s a rare treat to find these wines on UK soils. Production is 8000 ×6 cases a year, with the Reserve range consisting of only 1000 cases.
