Jorge Ordoñez & Co. Moscatel Sierras de Málaga Seco Botani 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Botani, the only dry wine of the winery, is made with a careful selection of the best Moscatel de Alejandria grapes grown in the vineyards on the north-facing slopes of the mountains of Axarquia. Due to the steepness of the slopes, all the work in the vineyard, including the harvest, is done by hand. The grapes are harvested into small baskets to prevent bruising and are carried by mules to the winery.

  Bodegas Jorge Ordoñez is a winemaking venture formed in 2004 between the Kracher family from Austria and the Ordoñez famly from Spain, as well as various friends and wine-loving entrepreneurs, based in Malaga, Spain. The winery is overseen by brother and sister winemakers Jorge and Victoria Ordoñez and Alistair Gardner is principal winemaker. The above-mentioned Kracher is none other than Alois Kracher, known for producing some of the world’s most renown Austrian sweet dessert wines. His son, Gerhard, joined the project creatively in 2008.    The project is dedicated to producing dessert wine styles using modern innovations and techniques, made from the varietal Muscat of Alexandria. Among an impressive portfolio, they are the first in modern history to produce a naturally sweet, unfortified Moscatel wine. This method has not been produced since sweet fortified wines gained popularity in the 17th century when brandy was added to the wine to stabilize it for the long sea voyage back to England.  Read less

Wow, pale, pale in the glass--yellow color is barely there. Very floral bouquet--orange blossoms? As expected, very very light on the palate. Some apple, banana, mango kind of flavors going on. Nice tartness makes this wine very refreshing. Very easy to drink. I'm not sure any food is light enough for this, but we are going to try it with grilled tuna, tonight. US$14.99 at the Wine Club

Very floral on the nose, but has a little minerality on the palate to balance the fragrant notes.

Beautiful, very floral nose. Hint of kiwi on the plate. Lush, refreshing and just plain pretty to drink! Would like to try it paired with seafood next.

Very Crisp. The aroma is like laying in a field just after the rain. The taste is fresh air; a good breeze on a hot evening such as the scorcher I opened, and shared this bottle on. Thanks to Astoria Wine and Spirits for the recommendation.

This wine is great- my husband and I first had it at a wine tasting and loved it right away, along with the majority of the people there. We took home a bottle and kept it chilled for many a months. We just cracked it open and, once again, we not disappointed. The wine is smooth and velvety. It has a citrus flavour and would pair very nicely with some barbecued lime shrimp. ~~

Tasting Notes:

Spain needs to continue making Moscatel in this vein: dry, layered, and definitely fun with or without food. The wine expresses aromas of orange flower water, lemons, oranges, and mangos in the nose, while the mouth has these same flavors, as well as distinct dried pineapple chunks. The finish is almost completely dry; it’s a bit of a happy roller-coaster ride.

Botani, the only dry wine of the winery, is made with a careful selection of the best Moscatel de Alejandria grapes grown in the vineyards on the north-facing slopes of the mountains of Axarquia.
