Made from 60% Pinotage, 40% Shiraz grapes. "Why does Rib Shack Red go so well with meat? A bit like asking why men barbeque and women make salad - it's just one of those things. Actually, maybe it's because to barbeque is one thing and salad is a lot of things - guys keep it simple. Wine can also be simple, and should be. Rib Shack Red. Say it and you know what it's going to taste like. Like a red wine should. Big and... deep and... er... ok, enough words. Just enjoy it and maybe best to keep it to yourself. Imagine telling another guy what you think of the wine... phew..." - Producer Notes
|For over 70 years, we have sourced and selected grapes to best express our South African wineland origins. It was already in 1942 that Douglas Green was convinced that the quality and character of the varied vineyards of the Western Cape should not be confined, but rather combined to express the best of each region.
This innovative take on traditional winemaking of the day gave Douglas Green the edge in terms of value and consistency that still prevails to this day.
We source only the best vineyards from the best suited regions for each variety to create our distinctive fruit-driven signature wines. After years of experience and close relationships forged over many vintages, our growers and appointed cellars are virtually ‘part of the family’.
The Douglas Green winemaking team is true to tradition but still modern and innovative in their dedication to creating lifestyle wines true to the needs of our local and international market and our promise of “Cape Wine at its best”.
