2017 Arboretum Red, Botanica Wines, Ginny Povall


Arboretum comes from Ginny Povall's beautiful home vineyard in Devon Valley and is a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated Bordeaux style red blend. Grippy, serious and dense, with firm, layered tannins and youthful plum and damson fruit.

Ginny Povall

A Boston native who then lived in New York for many years, Ginny Povall took the plunge and moved to Stellenbosch in 2009. She bought a flower farm, with 21 hectares of flowers, and started planting vines that year, as well as sourcing grapes from across the Cape. Her wines are some of the most crystalline, joyful bottles we try from any region, anywhere. They also have arguably the most beautiful labels. They’re from the works of Mary Delany, botanical collages from the late 1700s made with hundreds of pieces of cut paper.
