Le Riche 'Richesse' Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
Le Riche is the master of modern Cape Cabernet. A wine that over delivers on all fronts! This is the only red wine produced by Le Riche that is not 100% Cabernet. A reincarnation of Le Riche's classic Cab Merlot blend, this is an exceptionally lovely, classically Bordelaise blend. The wine has undergone no fining and is predominantly a meticulous blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (27%) with Merlot (24%), Petit Verdot(18%), Cabernet Franc (13%), Cinsaut (12%) and the remaining portion Malbec (6%). Restrained but appealing on the nose with typical red fruit aromas of plum, cherries and milled pepper are balanced by an aroma of finely ground graphite found in Left Bank Bordeaux. The palate is a masterpiece of blending - hugely appealing with juicy mouth-filling flavours of red berries, plums and smoky hints balanced with a fine, soft tannic structure and rounded finish. Finely structured and phenomenally fine, Christo Le Riche has more than stepped into his father’s shoes! Ideally paired with a meaty pasta dish and richer stews.
