Why do we love this wine?

Botanica are a South African producer with a cult following and their chenin blanc has gained the attention of the wine press world over. Tim Atkin describes it as ‘focused, pithy, taut and intense’ and we couldn’t agree more. This is next-level chenin blanc that is grown and made with immaculate attention to detail. Half of it was matured in 400L barrels, with the rest sitting in stainless steel, for nine months. This lees contact gives a gorgeous richness to the wine which is balanced by bright, zesty acidity, green apple and pears, and compelling minerality.

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!
