'2020 vintage– one of only four wines currently crafted from this Iberian grape varietal in South Africa. Intense aromatics of white peach and pink grapefruit follow through on the vibrant palate. Packed with zesty acidity, the wine refreshes with its juicy nectarine flavors, backed by undercurrents of grapefruit pith, lemongrass and lime zest.' – Ginny Povall, Winemaker

Tasting notes on the 2019 vintage:
'One of only three Albariños in South Africa - there are surely more on the way - this is the début release from Ginny Povall's Stellenbosch estate. True to the variety, with white flower and lemongrass aromas, good texture and salinity and grapefruit and quince flavours. Drink 2020-23.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 95/100

'Povall’s Flower Girl 2019 comes from vines on her Stellenbosch property grafted in 2018 onto rootstock planted in 2009 and winemaking involved fermentation and maturation for six months in concrete egg. The nose shows notes of naartjie, peach and dried herbs while the palate has just the right amount of palate weight, vibrancy acidity and a pithy finish. Possessing great focus, this is a promising debut.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 91/100
