Wine of the Weekend

Rib Shack Red Vintage Blend

Although most people have hung up their tongs for the winter, there are those who crave barbeque all year and never stop grilling. Either way, these mid-winter days can make you long for the smells and flavours of the grill. So, whether you are getting ambitious and firing up your own grill this weekend, or giving your favourite BBQ joint a call for some take-out, grab a bottle of Rib Shack Red Vintage Blend to accompany all your favourite dishes!

Tasting Notes: A blend of Pinotage and Shiraz, this is a full-bodied, juicy red with ripe, dark berry fruit and well-integrated tannins. Aromas of smoke, dark fruit, and spicy red peppers complement the flavour. The finish is rewardingly smooth with plenty of berry fruit character and savoury smoky oak spice.

Enjoy With: A sizzling steak, sticky ribs, smoky burgers, or with friends around the barbeque... err, Zoom screen.

Style: A full-bodied, smooth red wine.

Terroir / Region: South Africa has a rich and varied terrain, known for ancient soils and diverse properties across its winegrowing regions. Sourced from the finest quality grapes from the vineyards in the Western Cape, the expressive flavours of this made-for-the-barbeque wine exemplify South African terroir.

Producer: Founded in 1942, Douglas Green has a modern, innovative and creative approach dedicated to showing Cape wine at its best. They focus on selecting the finest grapes and pairing them with the perfect yeasts and fermentation methods best suited for the ultimate expression of the varietal style. From vineyard to bottle, Douglas Green creates wines of the highest quality from South Africa.
