Le Riche 'Richesse' 2016

£14.00

Le Riche is a family run estate in Stellenbosch where the vineyards are surrounded by the majestic Hottentots Holland Mountain. Here the family produce some excellent Cabernet based wines along with this excellent Chardonnay all in very much a classic French style.

Country: South Africa
Region: Stellenbosch
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Petit Verdot

Proper Cabernet Sauvignon, and for those who follow the variety closely will see the value in this wine. Made using hand-picked fruit from a variety of vineyards in Stellenbosch, this very French style of Cabernet can be enjoyed now, but will equally reward those who choose to save a few in the cellar to enjoy in years to come. Ripe cherries and fresh plums, vanilla and cedar spice on the nose. The palate has lush layers of fruit and spice plus smooth velvety tannins with a firm structure and lengthy finish. Great with casserole.
