It was Douglas Green’s ground-breaking realisation that the grapes from the Western Cape’s varied vineyards should be combined to express the best qualities and characteristics of each region that lead to the development of his eponymous range of sought-after wines. As vintner, viticulturist and entrepreneur he paved the way for the creation of consistently original wines in his signature style. Today we remain inspired by his extensive knowledge of the winelands, technical winemaking prowess and uncanny understanding of our customers’ desires. It is his pioneering spirit that lies at the heart of our winemaking philosophy and encourages us to push boundaries and question the status quo. And it is still doing now what Douglas Green, the first owner, set out to do all those years ago. His son, Douglas Green Jr is still involved with the company ensuring that his father’s legacy lives on. The wines are now made in the Douglas Green Cellar in Wellington from grapes sourced from partner growers, the vineyards overseen by the Douglas Green’s specialist viticulturists.
Dark ruby with a bright crimson rim. Enticing blackcurrant pastilles and blueberries embellished by a subtle oak spice. A firm yet friendly entry with juicy plum and mulberry flavours supported by well-defined ripe tannins allowing a succulent slightly textured fruity finish.
