Botannica - Flowergirl Albariño, Stellenbosch, South Africa (2020)
Intense aromatics of white peach and pink grapefruit follow through on the vibrant palate. Packed with brine and a zesty acidity, the wine refreshes with nectarines, grapefruit pith, lemongrass and lime zest.
Ginny Povall, a Boston native, found a new home on Protea Heights Farms. Planting her first 12 acres in 2009, Ginny now creates over 9 spectacular wines. Crafted from organically grown grapes from Botanica’s home vineyards on Protea Heights Farm, these wines are all about less intervention, less convention, and maximum deliciousness!
Grown on gravelly soils derived from shale. Hand sorted, destemmed, crushed and gently pressed. The wine was spontaneously fermented in a concrete egg and stainless tank where it remained on its lees for 3 months before bottling. No malolactic fermentation.
