Botani is made from very old vines, located in the ancient village of Almanchar in the mountains of Malaga. The wine is the collaborative effort of Jorge Ordonez, his family and the Kracher family from Austria. Botani expresses beautiful freshness and richness due to the Mediterranean breezes flowing through the vineyards, as well as the red slate soils of these steep mountains. Botani pairs perfectly with all seafood, spicy food, sushi or simply the best company.

"The 2009 Botani was sourced from organically farmed 70-year-old Moscatel de Alejandria vines producing tiny yields. Thirty percent of the wine was barrel-fermented in neutral French oak, the rest in stainless steel. Medium straw-colored with a green tint, it displays a nose of mineral, spring flowers, acacia, and a hint of tropical aromas. The 2009 vintage has produced a wine with extra density and concentration. Although the aromatics suggest sweetness, the wine is dry but very fruity, refreshing, and exceptionally long. It is an outstanding value that over-delivers in a big way."
