Le Riche Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

R675.00 per bottle.
We have only a few bottles left!

“From my time working for a winery in Stellenbosch I came to intimately understand the significance of cab in Stellenbosch. Stellenbosch is cab country and you would need a lot more than your ten fingers to count the extremely good cab producers in Stellenbosch. Thus to carry the reputation of the king of cab is a crown that sits heavy on the head. Yet year after year Le Riche keeps producing worlds beating Cabernets. All the more impressive is that there has been a handing over of the batton from father to son, and now the wine is made by Cristo Le Riche. For those that follow it closely the style has changed but the quality has remained supreme. Thus when putting this christmas list together, there had to be a cab, because cab is everything and it had to be Le Riche. I was incredibly fortunate to get allocated to share with you a few bottles of the 2014.It is a 6 year old Cab which is really coming into its own now. Notable and sighty unusual for a Stellenbosch cab it is in context fairly lightly wooded, with only 15% new oak used, a likely cause of the still very prominent primary fruit. It can certainly keep much longer but it is also much more ready to drink now then it would have been 2 or 3 years ago. It is showing a lot more detail and a lot more nuance now, it is a fantastic example of Cabernet and would be a welcome addition on your christmas table. “
