2018 Mary Delany Elgin Semillon, Botanica Wines, Ginny Povall

Nice floral, lifted nose, with beautiful candied lemons and real silkiness on the palate. Feel the cool climate here, with plenty of energy, too. Very good indeed.

TASTING NOTES

Performing a swan song in 2018, this is the last vintage of Botanica Semillon, as it's "so difficult to sell", according to Ginny Povall. Blending grapes from Elgin and the Hemel-enAarde Ridge, it's a smart wine that should be leaping off the shelves. Long, elegant and very focused, with honeysuckle and green herb notes and good ageing potential.
