A killer project from Jorge Ordonez in the Rueda area where this 100% old vine Verdejo is made. This 5000 case cuvee was fermented in stainless steel and large format French oak, and aged sur lie prior to bottling. Coming from sandy soils and ungrafted vines (some of which are 120+ years of age).
"Jorge Ordoñez has a small winery in Rueda with just over 38 acres of organically farmed vines. From vines situated at 2,850 feet above sea level. The wine offers up crisp, elegant, white peach and citrus notes intermixed with loamy, sandy soil undertones, zesty acidity and a naked mouthfeel. Drink this beauty over the next several years."
