This clear-looking sparkling Muscat from Málaga offers pleasant aromas of lychee, lime and white flowers. On the palate, it's elegant, with no stickiness. Lime and lychee flavors finish clean and properly sweet, with just enough acidic cut.
The Botani Sparkling Muscat is Spain’s answer to a Moscato D' Asti. The first sparkler made in Malaga, it has 9.5% alcohol, beautiful, fresh bubbles that give uplift and precision to the flowery, exotic perfume, and a good bit of residual sugar.
Wine maker notes
The earliest harvest in Europe takes place in these steep hillsides. It coaxes the most aromatics and flavor compounds from the grapes. The combination of poor soils, which are 85% slate with bits of white quartz and clay, and the dry climate, produce the finest Muscat de Alexandria grapes in the world. This particular clone is named after the city in Egypt where the varietal is believed to have originated. It was brought to the shores of Andalucia by the seafaring Phoenicians more than 3000 years ago.
