Botanica Mary Delany Collection Three Barrels Pinot Noir 2019
- Textured, savoury
- South Africa
We’ve been known to import a lot of South African wine, probably more than anyone else in Australia, but we rarely bring in pinot noir from the Rainbow Nation. It needs to be something really, really special. This certainly fits the bill. It’s tiny production stuff (three barrels...get it?) with less than 300 bottles even making it over here. The grapes were fermented whole, triggering some carbonic maceration (and the associated lively spiced characteristic) and then racked to seasoned French oak for nine months. It’s an expressive wine with herbs on the nose, followed by cherry and strawberry on the palate. It’s bright, floral and layered, exactly what you want out of a quality pinot.

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!
