Bodegas Ordonez Botani Moscatel Old Vines 2017 Botani Blanco is a white wine from D.O. Sierras de Málaga made by Jorge Ordoñez & Co, a winery founded in 2004 by the Ordoñez family and Kracher family, who are the number one producers of sweet wines in Austria.
The vineyards in Málaga are the most extreme in all of Europe. The mountainside vineyards are planted at inclinations of up to 70°. There is no terracing, ladders, or mechanization to assist with the harvest. The vineyards are worked completely by hand.
This wine is a single local variety Moscatel de Alejandría (100%) grown on old vines (70 years old) in Almachar located on north-facing mountain slopes about 400-600 meters above sea level. Organic Gobelet trained vines. Cultivated completely by hand, with minimal human intervention. The majority of the vines receive no treatments whatsoever.
Muscat of Alexandria is one of the oldest clones of the Muscat family and one of the only remaining genetically unmodified vitis vinifera cultivars remaining in the world today. The seafaring Phoenicians transplanted this grape from Alexandria, Egypt to Málaga 3,000 years ago.
