Le Riche Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Fine grained tannins and subtle oak integration. Forthcoming ripe cherry notes with a touch of spice.
Etienne Le Riche is widely known as South Africa’s ‘King of Cabernet’. His wines have an elegant, understated style with unusually fine grained tannins and a subtle oak integration - although not aiming to be Bordeaux replicas, they do have much in common with the balance and poise sometimes found in top Margaux. This is the backbone of the range, it is a wine that delivers all the qualities that a Le Riche Cabernet Sauvignon should. Supple, elegant and rich with layers of fruit, this is the expression of Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon. With fruit from the cool gravelly slopes facing False Bay to the rich red granitic soils around Stellenbosch, the wine gains its complexity by blending fruit from diverse terroirs. A wine that can be enjoyed younger or with several years of age. Vegetarian and Vegan.
The bouquet shows forthcoming ripe cherry aromas with a spiciness and touch of mint. Soft, smooth and velvety tannins are balanced on the palate by a firm structure and lingering, succulent finish.
