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

As geographically diverse country, with everything from lush green valleys to areas of arid desert, mountainsides and river estuaries, South Africa unsurprisingly produces a huge range of excellent wines. Regions such as the Breede River Valley consistently impress with their Semillon wines and the lush, fruity Ruby Cabernets grown and processed here, and the cooler region of Overberg is attracting much attention as a result of their silky Pinot Noir bottles. However, all over the oceanic tip of this fascinating country, traditional methods dating back over three hundred years are combining with modern technologies to produce some of the finest examples of New World wines to be found anywhere on the globe.
