2014 Jorge Ordóñez Botani Muscat Dry Sierras de Málaga (Previously $12)

SKU #1292644 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 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. (RP)  (11/2015)

90 points Vinous

 Vivid straw. Sexy, expansive aromas of fresh citrus fruits, honeydew, peach, pungent flowers and an urgent gingery note. The sappy, seamless palate offers intense pit fruit, melon flavors and a jolt of orange zest on the back half. Emphatically fruity and nervy, with strong finishing thrust and repeating floral and citrus fruit qualities. I'd drink this extroverted wine soon. (JR)  (1/2016)

Wine Spectator

 This effusive white bursts with lively fruit flavors of tangerine, apricot and quince, showing floral and vanilla accents. Citrusy acidity balances a touch of sweetness. Bright and refreshing. (TM)  (2/2016)
