Less than an hours drive from Cape Town in the heart of the Cape Wineands on the northern slopes of Paarl mountain you will find this beautiful 65 hecare wine estate producing international award winning wines. If you are fortunate enought to be planning a visit to South Africa this vineyard should certainly be on your itinerary. Meanwhile, we have a wide range of Ridgeback wines in-stock. www.ridgebackwines.co.za
We asked Winemaker Toit Wessels what's happening this week at Ridgeback. He and his team are busy pruning unwanted suckers from the vines and training the shoots onto the trellis. "We absolutley believe quality wines are made in the vineyard and therefore all our staff help out in the vineyards to get a feel for the season ahead", says Toit.
Of course this is Southern Hemisphere so the next harvest will be February/March 2018.
Ridgeback Lion Hound Red £8.95
An exciting blend of Shiraz (52%), Grenache, Merlot, Mourvedre and Cabernet Sauvignon. Great value-for-money. Dark cherries, plum and liquorice with a hint of cigar box and wood spice. A wine for all occassions.
The Rhodesian Ridgeback is also known as the African Lion Hound becasue of its ability to keep a lion at bay while waiting for its master to arrive. This wine reflects the strenth and power of the Lion Hound.
