Jorge Ordóñez & Co. Botani Moscatel Old Vines 2017


Only 9 left!

Wine Advocate- This expressive white offers floral, lychee and tangerine flavors in a round, plush texture that hint at sweetness, but gain energy from fresh citrusy acidity that keeps the finish juicy and clean.

Grapes- 100% Muscat of Alexandria
Winemaking- The extremely low yielding vines of Moscatel are painstakingly hand harvested starting on the 1st of August, making this the earliest harvest in mainland Europe. This early harvest ensures the proper balance of sugar and acid for an elegant dry white wine. The bunches are 50% destemmed, 50% whole cluster pressed. The wine ferments with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel, and is aged sur lie for six to eight months to add a sense of depth and complexity to the wine, which complements the beautiful aromatics.
