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

One of the most widely grown and easily recognized wine grape varietals in the world is the Muscat, an ancient grape with an exceptional amount of versatility. For centuries, Muscat varietal grapes have been used all over Europe for the production of wonderfully fruity wines of many different shades and colors, which, with their strong 'grapey' flavor have come to be known as a quintessential fine wine grape. Their relatively high acidity also means they are ideal for the production of sparkling wines, and the fizzy Muscat wines of Italy are widely agreed to be amongst the best in the world. In more recent years, New World countries have shown a huge amount of flair when it comes to the Muscat grape, and have had plenty of success in allowing its natural and vibrant character to come through in the bottle.

Country: Spain

From the deep and intense Rioja wines, or the dry and refreshing Ruedas, from Tempranillos to Verdejos, the range and quality of Spanish wines is always going to impress and fascinate. With several thousand years of traditions and expertise leading the way, Spanish wineries are currently producing some of the most flavorful and interesting wines to come out of Europe, striving to overcome the reputation problems the country suffered in the mid to late twentieth century. Despite being one of the largest producers of wine in the world, with billions of bottles being filled each year, Spanish wine producers are more interested in quality over quantity than ever before. The results of this are some truly world class wines rivaling even the finest produce of France in regards to balance, character and flavor, gaining new fans and enthusiasts every day.
