Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
For centuries , the beautiful floral bouquets using bunches of jasmine, have been sold in the streets of Malaga . Each flower is inserted carefully one by one, to form a perfect cluster. Sparkling Botani reflects every detail of an honorable tradition with centuries of existence. Each bunch of grapes is picked by hand to create a sparkling wine so vibrant that it explodes on the palate and fills the glass with exotic floral aromas.
"The 2012 Botani Sparkling Muscat is Spain’s answer to a Moscato from Northern Italy. The first sparkler made in Malaga, it has 5% alcohol, beautiful, fresh bubbles that give uplift and precision to the flowery, exotic perfume, and a good bit of residual sugar. However, the acidity balances out the sugar, resulting in a big, crisp, sparkling fruit cocktail that consumers will adore. The price is a steal.
The Wine Advocate
"Bright straw. Exotic aromas of candied citrus fruits, peach, melon and pungent flowers. Silky, broad and intensely perfumed in the mouth, offering lively pit fruit and honeysuckle flavors and notes of orange zest and rose. Closes smooth and long, with lingering sweetness and strong lift.
International Wine Cellar
Very sweet, very crisp and very aromatic. Both acidity and sweetness a little out of control. Drink colder than usual for a better experience.
