Description
 
Ordoñez’ white wines at are made from the ‘Muscat of Alexandria’ grape variety, and sourced from the geographical area of La Axarquia, in the mountains that run parallel to the Mediterranean Sea. The Muscat grape has been cultivated here for over 2,000 years. The vineyards are situated on partially decomposed red slate, intermingled with white quartz. The scant topsoil is punctuated by outcroppings of the mother rock. The soil makes cultivation very difficult here, and labour is very intense due to the steep, 40 to 60-degree inclines. The vineyards are non-terraced and are planted over 400 meters above sea level. Mechanical work is impossible due to the crumbly slate and steep mountainsides. The thin topsoil forces the vines to develop roots deep into the rock desperately searching for moisture, which also attributes to the distinct minerality found in the grapes they produce. Ordoñez’ vineyards range from 40 years old to well over 100 years old, the average being 70.

An absolutely amazing, decadent, luxurious sweet wine, made from 100% Moscatel de Alexandria, the 2014 Botani Victoria #2 comes from the estate's oldest 50-year-old vines and, according to Jorge Ordoñez, it takes 17 pounds of grapes to make one 375-milliliter bottle of this elixir. Truly great stuff, it has loads of honeysuckle, caramelized tropical fruits, hints of maple syrup and brown sugar. The wine is rich, fragrant with plenty of flowery notes intermixed with wet pebble-like minerality. It is full-bodied and unctuously textured, but has enough acidity to balance the sweet, rich texture. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.Wine Advocate 95 (2014)
