Jorge Ordonez N°2 Victoria 2014 375ml
Victoria is made from a selection of old vineyards situated on the most elevated points of the municipality of Almachar. The harvest is done manually during the middle of August. Fermentation is carried out completely in stainless steel tanks and, as is characteristic of this type of wine, the alcohol is derived exclusively from fermentation of the grapes; this is done by cooling once the desired alcohol content has been reached.
Wine AdvocateAn 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 Ordoñez, 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.
Wine EnthusiastAromas 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.
Wine SpectatorThis sweet white offers expressive flavors of Seville orange, lychee, rose petal and coconut, set in a smooth, rich texture, with just enough acidity to stay lively. Drink now through 2020. 500 cases made.
