Ridgeback

Paarl

Ridgeback wines is a family owned medium sized wine estate located in the heart of the Cape Winelands just outside of Paarl towards the Swartland. Settled at the foothills of the Paarl Mountain, Ridgeback focuses on producing high quality red and white wines.  All our grapes are hand harvested with a minimalistic approach to wine making ensuring only the highest quality wines get made.  The vineyard is named after the Rhodesian Ridgeback dog, which originated in Southern Africa, and that are kept on the farm.  The pedigree, character and stature of these impressive lion-hunters are reflected in the wines.

Lion Hound White 2020

A Sauvignon Blanc dominated blend with Viognier. A rich and expressive wine with upfront, tropical array of juicy white peach, pineapple, and orange blossom with a hint of citrus.

Lion Hound Shiraz 2018

Intense notes of juicy dark cherry, cracked black pepper, and a hint of liquorice run seamlessly onto a silky midpalate and an elegantly savoury finish.

Ridgeback Viognier 2019

Intense, upfront notes of citrus blossom, glazed pineapple, white peach and a hint of lavender. A creamy midpalate is well supported by subtle oak spice and lingering ruby grapefruit on the elegant finish. This bold food wine would complement a wide range of spicy dishes which include Indian, Malay, and Thai curries.
