Jorge Ordoñez & Co. Moscatel Sierras de Málaga Seco Botani 2010
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.
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.
Floral...a bit sweet...A bit wild and not something i would say I like, but it is worth a pour...good price and quality, but its not for me...
Crisp, smooth and inexpensive
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. ~~

Food Pairings for Jorge Ordoñez & Co. Moscatel Sierras de Málaga Seco Botani
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.
