RATINGS: 95pts Robert Parker; 91pts Wine Enthusiast

With the harvest of 2004, came the birth of the first bottles from our winery, located in the village of Alm�char, which lies nestled in the heart of the Axarqu�a region of M�laga. This mountainous region of steep slopes and slate soil near the Mediterranean is considered one of the oldest viticultural areas in Europe.

Ours is the first winery to be established in the local area, which is not surprising since the traditional use for Muscat Alexandria grape is in the production of raisins. Though, perhaps, the most innovative aspect of our winemaking proposal was to entrust the elaboration of our wines to world renowned Austrian winemaker, Alois Kracher, who is undoubtedly the number one in Austrian sweet wines. In addition Gerhard Kracher, who succeeded his father in 2008, a group of entrepreneurs from M�laga participate in the winery together with one of the most prominent Spanish wine importers in the US, Jorge Ord��ez, at the helm of this most original project, and his sister Victoria who is the general manager of the winery.

TASTING NOTES: Wine Advocate 95 points An absolutely amazing, decadent, luxurious sweet wine, made from 100% Moscatel de Alexandria, the 2014 Botani Victoria #2 comes from the estate's oldest 50 year old vines and, according to Jorge Ordonez, it takes 17 pounds of grapes to make one 375 milliliter bottle of this elixir. Truly great stuff, it has loads of honeysuckle, caramelized tropical fruits, hints of maple syrup and brown sugar. The wine is rich, fragrant with plenty of flowery notes intermixed with wet pebble like minerality. It is full bodied and unctuously textured, but has enough acidity to balance the sweet, rich texture. Drink it over the next 3 4 years..Robert M. Parker, Jr., November/2015

Wine Enthusiast 91 points Aromas of vanilla and animal crackers come with a note of white flowers. This wine feels lush, round and a touch clingy. Flavors of pineapple, melon and vanilla finish full and sticky, with the right amount of cutting acidity..Michael Schachner, December/2016
