Cellar for up to 5 years. Serve well chilled.

Botani is the result of a collaboration between renowned Spanish wine exporter Jorge Ordonez and Austria’s top sweet wine producer, the Kracher family. This unique dry white wine comes from the D.O. Sierras de Málaga wine region in southern Spain and is made with the Muscat of Alexandria grape which was brought to the area from Alexandria in Egypt by the Phoenicians.

The very difficult terrain here makes viticulture challenging since the vineyards are on steep north-facing slopes at 400 to 600 metres of altitude and need to be harvested and tended by hand. Many of the Muscat vines here are up to 70 years old and help to produce a very fragrant wine which is light and refreshing despite the extremely hot climate.

The nose sings with orange blossom, ripe apricots, peaches and crisp lemon zest, while the first sip reveals a racy acidity and generous stone fruit flavours. The winery ages the wine on the lees for 8 months to give a richer, creamier texture and a pleasing roundness to the wine. Thanks to its vivacious character and fragrant nose, Botani is the perfect wine to serve alongside spicy Asian dishes like Thai curries or noodle dishes.
