Le Riche Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

SARLRC01

Tasting Note

The coveted Le Riche Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is the flagship of the Le Riche range, blended using only Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from their best performing vineyard blocks from Stellenbosch. These selections are then micro-vinified in open-top fermenters. Extended maceration takes place in order to increase the overall age-ability of the final wine along with aging in oak.

At the appropriate stage, Etienne, Christo and Yvonne taste and blend together as a team. The final blend matures with a generous amount of new oak barrels for up to two years, with further ageing in bottle before release. ‘Reserve’ status is exclusively endowed if the grapes and resulting wine measure up to an exceptional standard, resulting in a wine of limited quantities and available on an allocation basis only.

Youthful, vigorous and focused, it has capsicum and pencil shaving top notes, layered damson and blackcurrant fruit, racy acidity and structured, dense, age worthy tannins. Very classy indeed. Tim Atkin MW
