Crisp pear, green apple, lemon verbena and honey leaping out of the glass. Very lively acidity, both round and supple in the middle. There’s a (dare I say) Chenin Blanc kind of flavor and aromatic profile to this that I love. Versatile, complex and fresh.

Light straw yellow color with tropical and citrus fruit aromas with hints of herbs. On the palate Pear, Melon and Lemon citrus flavors emerge, savory. The lengthy ending is balanced with fruit and mineral with grassy notes. Very nice! Sample.

Lunch with Jorge and victor Ordonez themselves! Fantastic Verdejo vines planted in 1885- light oak and sur lie - Meyer lemon vanilla reminiscent of white burgundy

This bottle had been opened three days before we sampled, still crisp, light acidity, light minerality, trending a little towards a pineapple core note.

Ripe golden apples, hints of lemon liquor and woodiness in the bouquet. Apple, blood orange, white peach, hints of cranberry on the palate. Strong golden color and medium thick legs, a hint of gingery spice on a juicy finish. Nice food wine, went surprisingly well with spicy veg pizza.

This wine definitely grew on me. Initially thought it didn’t have a lot going on but came back to it and got delicate citrus, creamy lychee and a hint of salinity. Stone fruits, melon and a ton of minerality on the palate. Refreshing acidity makes this a nice summer sipper.
