Winemaker's Notes:

Leave it to Alois Kracher and Jorge Ordonez and the help of red slate soils to pull all the fragrant qualities of the most fragrant Moscatel and keep it dry and snappy. Perfumed floral notes collide with heady citrus. With a round mouthfeel and a faint peach pit quality, this Malagan kept refreshing by a citrus quality that gives this wine a bracing zip to check all the scents.

About Bodegas Botani:

With the harvest of 2004, came the birth of the first bottles from our winery, located in the village of Almáchar, which lies nestled in the heart of the Axarquía region of Málaga. This mountainous region of steep slopes and slate soil near the Mediterranean is considered one of the oldest viticultural areas in Europe.

Ours is the first winery to be established in the local area, which is not surprising since the traditional use for Muscat Alexandria grape is in the production of raisins. Though, perhaps, the most innovative aspect of our winemaking proposal was to entrust the elaboration of our wines to world-renowned Austrian winemaker, Alois Kracher, who is undoubtedly the number one in Austrian sweet wines. In addition Gerhard Kracher, who succeeded his father in 2008, a group of entrepreneurs from Málaga participate in the winery together with one of the most prominent Spanish wine importers in the US, Jorge Ordóñez, at the helm of this most original project, and his sister Victoria who is the general manager of the winery.
