Schalk Burger, owner of Welbedacht farm in Wellington, was in jovial mood after his big-volume, easy-drinking Meerkat 2009 placed among the winners at the Absa Top 10. He’s father of Schalk Jnr, part of the Springbok squad for this year’s Rugby World Cup and a former Bok himself, and is confident that the Springboks will make the last eight in this year’s tournament. “After that, it’s about survival. You’ve got to duck and dive like a Meerkat”.
