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.

Winery Botanica

Country: South Africa

Perhaps the most famous and well respected of all the wine regions in South Africa is that of Constantia, which holds many of the oldest and most traditional wineries in the country. Here, the temperate climate receives the Atlantic winds which cool the vineyards, and the fertile soil allows the grapes to grow to full ripeness, resulting in highly flavorful wines which are enjoyed around the world. Whilst Sauvignon Blanc varietals make up the most widely exported wines of this region, the rest of the country produces a huge and impressive range of wines, made up from varietals native to many different European countries. From excellent Champagne style sparkling wines, to aromatic fortified examples, fruity reds and refreshing whites, South Africa continues to impress and surprise, with modern techniques and technologies leading the way and producing exceptional results.
