Botanica Wines was founded in 2009 by owner and self-taught winemaker Ginny Povall, who purchased the Protea Heights farm. Protea Heights was the first farm in South Africa to cultivate indigenous protea flowers commercially and is the inspiraation for Ginny's brand and labels.
The Bordeaux blend Arboretum is Ginny's flagship wine. It is a blend of the best barrels the vintage gives the winemaker. It is very well-balanced and structured with integrated, fine grained tannins & lively acidity. The palate, boasts a core of black fruits, with earth, mint, smoke, and leather nuances. The finish is long and fruit centric. Pair with Beef, lamb, or game.
