Yeah, enough is enough, I’m sick and tired of being a dry muscat virgin.
My liberation is on the way, details below.

The Ordoñez family, Jorge and his sister Victoria, were the first to try and produce a dry, crisp wine from 100% Muscatel de Alexandria in Malaga. This area is known for historic, sweet wines, with ancient history stretching back to 600 B.C. for viticulture. These steep, almost unreal hillside vineyards are planted in decomposed red slate, with a mixture of white quartz. They are complex soils, but the Botani has turned out to be an incredible success story and a great value. The 2014 Botani is light-bodied, shows flowery, fragrant notes with hints of flint, wet stones, plenty of perfumed citrus, orange blossom, tangerine oil and caramelized lemons. Almost all of this is aged in stainless steel, with about one-fifth in older wood, but this spent seven months on its lees prior to bottling. The 2014 is a beautiful wine, as it has been in the past, a dry Muscat that is a killer aperitif or a refreshing white wine. Drink it over the next year.
