Regarded as one of the leading ultra-premium producers of Cabernet Sauvignon, the Le Riche vision is to craft the ultimate expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Stellenbosch Winelands of South Africa. Founded and managed by the Le Riche Family, they exclusively select and source only the highest-quality fruit, from unique vineyards, grown by long-term, established farmers. At the core of this is an inherent knowledge and respect of terroir, in particular the soil, and a winemaking ethos that is traditionally simplistic yet innovative.
Combining decades of experience and knowledge, the Le Riche team excel in isolating various terroirs that best create the ultimate expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from the region. Thanks to this noble grape's thoroughbred genetics and impressive adaptability, we can dedicate our winemaking pursuit to crafting quality-focused wines that are detailed in approach and reflective of their terroir.
“Cabernet is not a forgiving grape. It needs to be treated with respect and tended with a level of understanding that only comes from years of training and work. If done right, the result is a wine with powerful yet refined, elegant tannins. Finding that balance is the true art.” - Christo Le Riche
