For 73 years, the personal touch of Douglas Green has lived in the eponymous range of wines made with the same intuition that began this progressive wine brand in 1942. Douglas Green wanted to sell good, expressing the grape at even handed prices to his customers.

This wine is a blend of 65% Blanc de Noir, a blended red wine made solely from red wine grapes, and 35% of Hanepoot, usually referred to as Muscat d’Alexandrie.
The spritz in the wine is referred to as a cheeky sparkle on the label, and that is what it is all about. It is crisp and fresh and needs to be chilled well.
