Botanica Mary Delany Chenin Blanc 2022


‘This is from a special terroir from the late Henk Laing’s farm. Following on previous great releases, this is one of the finest to date. It has a touch more restraint. Leads with a great nose that is both shy, mineral, and salty, hinting at concentrated notes of fresh pineapple and energizing early ripening peach. There are notes of wet wool, hay, white flowers, fynbos, curry leaf and a whiff of ginger as the nose evolves. The palate is elegant, with a citric thread, great focus, salty mineral again, with long detailed palate. Chalky grip and lemon pith adds precision to the finish. The vineyard was planted in 1960 and this is a great vintage for this wine specifically.’ – James Pietersen, January 2023

‘Complex and elegant, with layers of pure, concentrated pear, citrus and stone fruit flavors, mouth-watering acidity and a tangy, mineral core.’ – Winemaker
