Wine Anthology review:
Victoria #2 is made from the Moscatel de Alexandria grape, an ancient variety that was traditionally relegated to table grape or raisin production. Bodegas Jorge Ordoñez helped revive its use in winemaking, producing an unctuous 2014 with notes of honeyed pineapple, ripe guava, and candied orange peel that stays rich through its sticky-sweet, tantalizing mouthfeel. Undertones of mineral and white floral notes let it transcend pure sweetness to provide great accompaniment to strong cheeses, chocolate, and ripe fruit.
"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 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." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

"Green-tinged gold. Potent aromas of peach and pear nectar, candied ginger and dusty minerals. The sharply focused and very sweet palate deftly combines depth, power and vivacity, with pit fruit and honey flavors. Finishes very long and floral, showing emphatic spiciness and a sexy floral touch. The interplay of decadent sweetness and nerviness is pretty compelling here. Drinking window: 2016 - 2028." —Josh Raynolds, Vinous
