Le Riche "Richesse" '15

We are big fans of Le Riche and feel this is a great example of the direction that wine of South Africa is slowly moving towards; quality driven through experimentation with what truly works best for the site.  Etienne Le Riche is a passionate, well spoken winemaker who believes in Cabernet Sauvignon and that the terroir of Stellenbosch are a perfect match.  We couldn't agree more, with it's nervy backbone full of acidity and modest fruit showcasing elegance and immense quality.  It is incredibly well balanced and not overly extracted, leaving your palate coated and lingering with sweet, fine grained tannins.

This is a blend of predominately Cabernet Sauvignon alongside Cinsault (which Etienne believes brings fresh acidity and the ability to age the wine furthermore), Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Petite Verdot, aged in French oak barrels 18-24 months.  A great Bordeaux alternative, best with rich dishes centering around beef or pork.
