This wine defies the odds with not only wine drinkers but where it is produced as well. It comes from the Sierras de Malaga. This is a mountanous region near the Southern Tip of Spain. It is actually very close in proximity to where most Sherry is produced. It is extremely hot and typically white wines do not do well here. Leave it to the genius that it is Jorge Ordonez to figure out that a beautiful Moscatel can be made here. Jorge takes chances and it almost always pays off. botani is no exception! Do yourself a favor and grab a bottle today, put in on ice, grab a seat on a patio and indulge!
botani In a nutshell:
Description: Clean and Crisp with a good bit of minerality and acid. The fruit here is tropical with hints of lime zest.
Pairings: Any kind of seafood such as salmon, shrimp, a bowl of linguine and clam sauce, etc. It also pairs extremely well with Thai food such as Pad Thai or Green Curry.
Vintages/Price: Current is 2010 but there are great deals to be found on the 2009 in most markets at this time. Overall, it will cost you between $15 and $22 when you see it on the shelves.
