BOTANI VINEYARDS 2012 BOTANI MOSCATEL DRY
"The dry 2012 Botani, made from 100% Moscatel de Alexandria, has been adored by everyone Iíve served it to. Prior to this project, no one had used these grapes except for sweet wines. However, this is one of the most seductive and amazingly perfumed, flowery, dry whites in the world. Coming from decomposed slate and quartz soils of volcanic origin, this 2012 exhibits a sumptuous perfume of spring flowers, exotic fruits such as mango, pineapple, peach and apricot, and hits the palate with gorgeous fruit. While there may be a touch of residual sugar, it is not noticeable. Most of these wines last for nearly 70 years of age, so itís amazing this 2012 Botani can be purchased for $17 a bottle."
