Graham Beck The Game Reserve Chardonnay 2016

The Game Reserve Chardonnay shows a delightfully fresh disposition that is complimented by zesty aromas of lemon curd, citrus and crushed oyster shell aromas. From nose to palate these flavours translate seamlessly, redolent at first, the palate reveals cresting waves of limes, lemons and grapefruit flavours that roll over the tongue. A delicate oak frame is supported by a sophisticated mineral undertone that ushers in a pleasing chalky finish. Delightfully dry, with a gorgeous fruit-focused character, this Chardonnay is a great match for grilled calamari, citrus chicken salad and rich seafood dishes.

The Game Reserve introduces wine lovers to a concept that is both unique and uplifting - a wine brand truly committed to caring for and celebrating our precious natural environment. It is one of the only wine ranges in the world to be tangibly connected with a private nature reserve where the land is nurtured in its pristine natural state. For each single bottle sold, a portion of the funds are re-invested into vital conservation projects in southern Africa.

The Cape Eagle Owl (Featured on the label)
As one of the world's largest and most powerful owls, the Cape Eagle Owl (Bubo capensis) plays an essential role as a top predator. If the species were to disappear, the entire ecosystem would be in jeopardy. These regal birds of prey hunt from roadside roosts such as telephone poles and fence posts - many are killed by vehicles. We provide more than 120 perches in our vineyards to combat this, while they control rodents and maintain a balanced population of smaller predators.
