This aromatic white is perfumed with orange blossom, honeysuckle and lime. More straightforward on the palate, but still offers a fruit cocktail of flavors, with firm, fresh acidity. A nice aperitif. - TM

Bodegas Botani's 2010 Botani is made from 100% Moscatel de Alejandria sourced from old vines. The wine is fermented in stainless steel (60%) and wood puncheons (40%) with 5 months of aging sur lie. Fragrant aromas of jasmine, honey, and tropical fruits inform the nose of this nicely proportioned, intense, savory, dry white. It is an outstanding value for drinking over the next 1-2 years. - JM

Pale straw.  Intensely perfumed bouquet of citrus pith, pear and anise, with alluring spiciness and chalky minerality.  Vibrant lime, lemon and smoky mineral flavors expand and gain depth with air, picking up a sexy floral character.  Finishes racy and pure, with lingering lime and floral character. - JR
