Professional Wine Reviews for Jorge Ordonez & Co. Old Vines No 3 2006

Rated 93 by Stephen Tanzer
Deep gold. Powerful aromas of smoky apricot, nectarine, orange peel and floral honey are enlivened by dusty minerals. Deep and fleshy, with concentrated pit fruit flavors and a slow-building nutty quality. A very rich wine, but this doesn't come off as cloying or overly thick. Clings tenaciously on the finish, repeating the honey note.

Additional Information on Jorge Ordonez & Co. Old Vines No 3 2006

Winery: Jorge Ordonez & Co.

Varietal: Muscat

The Muscat grape has been grown and cultivated for centuries all over Europe, and in more recent years has become something of a flagship varietal for many New World countries. It is widely admired for its versatility and for the fact that it can be successfully used for the production of many different styles and types of wine. In eastern and central Europe, it is most commonly associated with elegant sweet dessert wines, further west it is used for bright and strong dry white wines, and it is also famous for the superb sparkling wines it produces, full of elegant bubbles and a mineral-rich flavor which compliments its natural 'grapey' character. Muscat grapes are generally agreed to be one of the oldest varietals in the world, and this goes some way to explaining the seemingly vast differences the fruit shows in various parts of the world.

Country: Spain

Spanish wines are renowned world-wide for carrying all the passion and character of the Spanish culture within them. Any lover of Spanish wine would undoubtedly be able to confirm this notion, as the variety and range of flavors and aromas coming from the high end of Spanish produce is truly impressive, and continues to delight and fascinate both newcomers and the more experienced. Spain benefits massively from an ideal climate for wine production and vine cultivation, with its long, scorching hot summers and far reaching oceanic breezes working perfectly with the native and imported grape varietals, which thrive on the mineral rich soils that cover much of the country. With centuries of knowledge, and generations of expertise under their belts, Spanish wineries continue to focus on raising the quality of their nation's wines, helped along the way by relatively new laws and regulations regarding regional excellence and representativeness.
