Botanica Wines was founded in 2008 by self-taught winemaker and New Yorker Virginia Povall. Although recently settled down in South Africa, Povall is considered a rising star in the country and her very first vintage of 2009 was awarded 5 stars in the influential Platter’s guide. The Pinot Noir grapes of Botanica 2015 were sourced in Elgin, hand-sorted and destemmed but not crushed. The whole berry fermentation took place in open tanks with punch downs twice a day and the wine was raised in old oak barrels in order to maintain its elegance and delicacy, then further matured in French oak barrels for nine months before being bottled.
The Botanica Pinot Noir 2015 is very delicate in style with layers of cherry, raspberries, blood orange and a hint of spice. The wine comes together beautifully with a good acidity and a floral lift on the finish.
