"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."
"This pioneering project of the Ordonez family in Malaga reflects the visionary aspects of Jorge Ordonez and his family. Jorge Ordonez and his sister, Victoria, are behind this project, but one should not discount the influence and consulting work of Gerhart Kracher, a member of Austria's well-known Kracher family. These amazing wines must be tasted to be believed." (11/13)

"Green-tinged straw. Highly perfumed aromas of honeydew, peach and white flowers, with a spicy overtone. Lithe, penetrating melon and white peach flavors show very good clarity and expand with aeration. At once fleshy and precise, finishing with strong punch and a refreshingly bitter jolt of orange pith." (10/13)
"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."
"It is produced from a careful selection of the best vines of Muscat of Alexandria from our vineyards located in the north-facing slopes in the mountains of Almáchar , at an altitude of between 600 and 800 meters. All grapes are harvested by hand, in small boxes of 10 kg, to prevent damage to the fruit and the boxes are carried uphill by hand and loaded onto mules. This ensures they arrive at the winery in perfect conditions." - Winery
