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.

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. Wine Advocate 92 (2012)
