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 Chenin Blanc are grown in the Cederberg Mountain range in central South Africa. After fermentation, the wine was left on the fine lees in a mixture of stainless steel tanks and oak barrels for 9 months. the wine is full of pear, citrus and stone fruit flavors, mouth-watering acidity and a mineral core.
