Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
The 2009 Botani was sourced from organically farmed 70-year-old Moscatel de Alejandria vines producing tiny yields. Thirty percent of the wine was barrel-fermented in neutral French oak, the rest in stainless steel. Medium straw-colored with a green tint, it displays a nose of mineral, spring flowers, acacia, and a hint of tropical aromas. The 2009 vintage has produced a wine with extra density and concentration. Although the aromatics suggest sweetness, the wine is dry but very fruity, refreshing, and exceptionally long. It is an outstanding value that over-delivers in a big way.
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.
