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.
Pale gold with a vibrant green glow. Exuberant passion fruit, ripe peaches and pineapple on first impression embellished with honey suckle grace that carries through to a generous yet well tempered palate packed ripe fruit flavours freshened up by a tangy citrus acidity on the finish.
Refreshing with subtle layers of peach and melon, this unwooded white wine has a firm and lingering finish adding a dash of complexity.
