Professional Wine Reviews for Botanica Arboretum Red Blend 2013

Rated 91 by Robert Parker
A blend of Bordeaux varieties, the maiden 2014 Arboretum is a selection of the best barrels. It has an excellent, very pure, quite focused bouquet with layers of plush blackberry and tobacco fruit that is nicely integrated with the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied and very well balanced. The Cabernet Franc comes through impressively here with good acidity and fine structure towards the finish. Cannot afford Right Bank Bordeaux? Me neither. Then take a look at this.

Additional Information on Botanica Arboretum Red Blend 2013

Winery: Botanica

Country: South Africa

With its hot, long summers and oceanic winds from both the west and the east, South Africa is something of a haven for a wide range of imported grape varietals. Since the mid-18th century, the country has been associated with some very fine wines made using complex and careful blending techniques, with one of the most famous and widely loved early examples being constructed from Pontac, Muscadel and Chenin Blanc varietals. Since those colonial days, the regions around Cape Town have proven again and again to be fantastic areas for producing interesting and delicious wines, with many of the best examples of Champagne style sparkling wines originating from these fertile lands. From the scorchingly hot regions of Orange Rivers, to the far cooler and temperate appellations in Walker Bay, South Africa has developed a booming wine industry responsible for many of the finest New World wines available anywhere across the globe.
