Le Riche is the master of modern Cape Cabernet and this is a wine that over delivers on all fronts! Le Riche 'Richesse' Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 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. Winemaker Christo le Riche has produced a wine with a restrained but appealing nose with typical red fruit aromas of plum and cherries are balanced by a sensation of the 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 you should pair this with a meaty pasta dish and richer stews.
