£24.00 GBP

Botanica Wines was founded in 2009 by owner and self-taught winemaker Ginny Povall, an intrepid American who fell in love with the beautiful Cape winelands, purchased Protea Heights farm in Stellenbosch’s Devon Valley and relocated to the southern tip of Africa in 2008.

The vines for this Chardonnay are situated 30km away from the sea in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. This valley gives the climate a cool breeze and allowing the grapes to retain their acidity. This is then aged French oak barrels and on its lees in barrel for 9 months, Both of these factors create a wine that is full of vibrant lemon and lime zest with a slight pithy character, these are underpinned by delicate pastry flavors.
