In Stock & Ready To Ship!

A phenomenal expression of Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon with a maritime influence that sets it apart, yet with a nod to Bordeaux.

With carefully selected fruit from the cool gravelly slopes facing False Bay to the rich red granitic soils around Stellenbosch, the wine gains its complexity by expertly blending fruit from 4 specifically diverse terroirs.

Ripe cherries and fresh plums are balanced on the nose by vanilla and cedar spice. The palate has lush layers of fruit and spice plus smooth velvety tannins with a firm structure and lengthy finish.

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.

If youre based in Stellenbosch and going to specialise in something, Cabernet is a great choice! 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. The estate was founded by Etienne Le Riche in 1996 and remains a family affair.
