2021 Le Riche ‘Richesse’, WO Stellenbosch

£16.50 inc. VAT

A gorgeous blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon with a seasoning of Cinsault, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec.

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.

Grapes were carefully selected and hand-picked from vineyards located in Stellenbosch. each variety is fermented separately  in traditional open concrete tanks and then transferred to French oak barriques for 12 months maturation. After blending, the finished wine is aged for a further 8 months in barrique and foudre. There is no fining and minimal filtration.

Fresh, vibrant aromas of raspberry and blackcurrant with touches of cedar and white pepper. Plenty of succulent, juicy fruit on the palate with mouth-filling flavours of red cherry and plum. Fine, elegant tannins enhance the silky mouthfeel and long, delicate finish. The Cabernet Sauvignon adds body and complexity whilst the Cinsaut brings great perfume and accessibility to this versatile and superb value wine.
