Why do we love this wine?

This gorgeous Bordeaux style blend comes from a five hectare vineyard around winemaking wonder Ginny Povall’s house. Classic in its outlook, you can expect to find all the blackcurrant, cassis, mint, cedar and spunky tannin of a fine cabernet blend. Rich yet elegant, this benefits from some fantastic knitting together of parts; cab franc, merlot and petit verdot are superbly judged in the blend to cover all bases. It’ll age superbly, too, no doubt.

Winemaker: Virginia ‘Ginny’ Povall

Ginny (as she’s pretty much universally known) is an American-born, South African resident winemaker and protea farmer. Proteas are a much more profitable crop, but she can’t resist the draw of the grape, too. So, she does both. She left her job as Chief Operating Officer at a large consulting firm in New York to start Botanica wines. Talk about inspiring!
