About This Wine

This wine is a pure expression of what Le Riche are all about - an unaltered expression of the Stellenbosch style, and the reason they are so passionate about this grape.

Black fruits on the nose are well integrated with undertones of fresh herbs, cedar and a hint of spice. Grainy tannins create grip and freshness on the structured palate and follow through to a lingering softly fruited finish.

The true backbone of the La Riche range, this is their expression of the quintessential Cabernet Sauvignon from Stellenbosch.

About Le Riche

Le Riche Wines was founded by Etienne le Riche in 1996 and is run as a family concern. With a passion for the Cabernet grape, Etienne wanted to create a winery which celebrated this variety.

They aim to craft the ultimate expression of Cabernet Sauvignon, with their 3 flagship wines all expressing different aspects of the grape.

In their own words “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.”

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
