Nisia Verdejo Old Vines 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a new project of Jorge Ordonez. The winery is located in the town of Puras, which sits on the border of Segovia in Rueda. All the vineyards are located in Segovia. It is not only the most southeastern area in the appellation of Rueda, but it is also the highest in elevation (2,850 ft). The soil is very poor and sandy and this area was able to resist phylloxera. The grapes for Nisia come from seven very old (up to 125 years old) small parcels of Verdejo vines trained in the vaso system. The grapes are hand harvested. The wine is aged sur lie and 20% is fermented in large French Oak barrels

  Bodegas Jorge Ordoñez is a winemaking venture formed in 2004 between the Kracher family from Austria and the Ordoñez famly from Spain, as well as various friends and wine-loving entrepreneurs, based in Malaga, Spain. The winery is overseen by brother and sister winemakers Jorge and Victoria Ordoñez and Alistair Gardner is principal winemaker. The above-mentioned Kracher is none other than Alois Kracher, known for producing some of the world’s most renown Austrian sweet dessert wines. His son, Gerhard, joined the project creatively in 2008.    The project is dedicated to producing dessert wine styles using modern innovations and techniques, made from the varietal Muscat of Alexandria. Among an impressive portfolio, they are the first in modern history to produce a naturally sweet, unfortified Moscatel wine. This method has not been produced since sweet fortified wines gained popularity in the 17th century when brandy was added to the wine to stabilize it for the long sea voyage back to England.  Read less
