The coveted Le Riche Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is the flagship of our range, blended using only Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from our 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.
