Botanica Mary Delany Collection Chardonnay 2020
- South Africa
This wine has something of a cult following, and we’re not just talking about the ‘fo. It’s the top top top draw chardonnay from the amazing South African producer Botanica. It’s a masterpiece of winemaking, with perfectly-judged brushstrokes of interest applied to lovely fruit. Half of it was matured in 400L barrels, with the rest sitting in stainless steel, for nine months. This gives a gorgeous richness of texture to the bright palate of green apple, pear and minerality, backed by just a hint of brioche. It really is some of the most beautiful wines we sell from anywhere in the world!

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!
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.
