"Honey Badger is a new bold sweet red appealing to those who prefer a rich, ripe and sumptuously fruity wine. Lured by the honeyguide bird to the tempting dangers of the beehive, Africa's Honey Badger attacks with little concern for the stinging consequences. Thanks to the help from its feathered friend, the Honey Badger is able to reap its sweet reward. Honey Badger is produced from Shiraz and Pinotage grapes. It has a smoky, chocolate nose with some woody notes on the palate. Its ripe berry character provides a rich full finish, catering for the market that enjoys the smoothness and body of a red wine, yet search for that extra hint of sweetness. This flavorful red is the perfect accompaniment to red meat, mature yellow cheese or even berry inspired desserts. Jaco Potgieter, Honey Badger's winemaker says, 'This is first and foremost a red wine, the chocolate flavours on the palate are full and ripe with the touch of sweetness to round-off a bold taste.'" - Winery Notes
|For over 70 years, we have sourced and selected grapes to best express our South African wineland origins. It was already in 1942 that Douglas Green was convinced that the quality and character of the varied vineyards of the Western Cape should not be confined, but rather combined to express the best of each region.
This innovative take on traditional winemaking of the day gave Douglas Green the edge in terms of value and consistency that still prevails to this day.
We source only the best vineyards from the best suited regions for each variety to create our distinctive fruit-driven signature wines. After years of experience and close relationships forged over many vintages, our growers and appointed cellars are virtually ‘part of the family’.
The Douglas Green winemaking team is true to tradition but still modern and innovative in their dedication to creating lifestyle wines true to the needs of our local and international market and our promise of “Cape Wine at its best”.
