Tasting notes:
'Delicate yet by no means lightweight 2018 has tangy red cherry, raspberry & cranberry fruit, with enticing floral perfume & spicy, lingering finish. Combo Stellenbosch & Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge fruit, matured 9 months in French oak 20% new.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'Combining fruit from the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge and Stellenbosch's Devon Valley, this is the best Pinot Noir I've had yet from Ginny Povall. Pale, elegant and refined with rose petal and wild strawberry notes, focused acidity, elegant tannins and way less new wood than in the past. Drink 2020-24' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 93/100

About Botanica:
Botanica, located on Protea Heights farm, was founded in 2009 by owner and winemaker, Ginny Povall. Ginny flies somewhat under the radar but is best known for her multiple Platter’s 5-star winner, the Mary Delany Chenin Blanc. Since Protea Heights farm was the first in South Africa to cultivate indigenous protea flowers commercially, it is fitting that the wine labels are floral themed. Just under half of the 21.6 hectares are planted with indeginous flowers, and since 2014 Botanica has been practising organic farming in their vineyards. There’s a wonderful sense of quiet purpose and ‘painterly’ aesthetic to Ginny’s approach to winemaking.
