Graham Beck The Game Reserve Viognier 2010

This versatile and rewarding Viognier displays a rich nose of peaches and honeysuckle. Tinned pears and a nougat-like nuttiness contribute to a palate with feminine elegance. A crisp apple acidity complemented by orange rind and apricot follow through to a long, lingering finish.

The Honey Badger
The honey badger or ratel (Mellivora capensis) is a feisty little omnivore regarded as one of Africa's most fearless animals despite its small stature. Although listed as a threatened species this fascinating creature resides in the Graham Beck Private Nature Reserve and has a special fondness for honey. Bees are crucial for the pollination of our vineyards - motivating us to embrace badger friendly beekeeping practices.

about the harvest: Selective hand harvesting of grapes during the last 2 weeks of February and then further selective sorting of grapes at the cellar.
