Botani Sparkling

3.75cl Jorge Ordonez Muscat of Alexandria Spain > Malaga Sweet, Dessert Wine
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.

This winery was originally a joint venture between the Ordonez family from Malaga and Alois Kracher, the famous sweet winemaker from Austria. Unfortunately, Mr. Kracher sadly passed away in November 2007 and winemaking duties have been passed on to his son and assistant, Gerhard.
The focus is exclusively on the extraordinary Moscatels of the region and during his tenure, Alois Kracher changed the method in which these wines are produced. Traditionally, grapes for these sweet wines were dried in the sun on straw mats. This led to wines of intense sweetness but also an unpleasant baked/caramel character. Alois began to dry the grapes indoors, in cooler cellars, away from the burning Malaga sun, which resulted in a style of wine that was cleaner, fresher and retained crisp acidity.
The vineyards are located around the village of Almarchar and are planted in slate soils exclusively to Muscat of Alexandria. The vineyards have altitudes varying from 200m to 600m and from young vines up to 50 year old vines.
