Heiner Lobenberg über:
Cabernet Sauvignon 2018


Lobenberg: Archetypisch Stellenbosch. Dieser Spagat zwischen Moderne und traditioneller Eleganz gelingt kaum besser als in dieser Gemeinde. Cabernet mit burgundischer Kirsche und phänomenaler Seidigkeit, ganz reif und unendlich fein. Konzentrierte, gleichwohl tänzelnde Frucht. Eine Art Saint Julien aus Stellenbosch, großes feines Kino. 95+/100


Tim Atkin über: Cabernet Sauvignon

-- Tim Atkin: It's great to see Le Riche back where it belongs among the best producers of Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon. Produced from a number of separately fermented blocks, this is wonderfully scented and appealing for a young wine, with filigree tannins, very fine 35% new wood, layers of intensity and concentration and the fruit power and depth to age in bottle. 94/100

Weingut über: Cabernet Sauvignon

-- Weingut: Origin: Wine of origin StellenboschWards: Jonkershoek, Firgrove, Raithby, Simonsberg, HelderbergBlend: 100% Cabernet SauvignonMaturation: 24 months in French oak barrels. 30 % new oak.Viticulture: The fruit for this wine is sourced from selected vineyards sites within Stellenbosch. The conscientiously considered mixture of cool gravelly slopes facing False Bay and rich red granitic soils around Stellenbosch ensure a beautiful balance of aromas and flavours in the final wine.Winemaking: Once harvested, the grapes are bunch sorted and pumped into open-top fermenters. Here, Christo and the winemaking team vinify each vineyard block separately, allowing the characteristics and flavours of each block to develop. After a year of ageing, the final blend is made, and the wine spends a further year in oak before release. The result is a Cabernet Sauvignon that brims with complexity thanks to the blended fruit from diverse terroir. It can be enjoyed young or will benefit beautifully from cellaring. Tasting Notes: Aromas of cherries, plumbs and cassis are well integrated with undertones of wild herbs and lead pencil shavings. Granular tannins create grip and freshness on the structured palate and follow through to a ong lingering finish with juicy soft fruit. A classic Stellenbosch Cabernet.Analysis: 14.81% 3.67 5.8 g/l 1.6 g/l (Dry)
