White Wine Nisia 2018
Availability: In stock
It is made from old vines located at an altitude of 950 metres above sea level. Soils are composed of sand and rocks and have extremely low levels of organic matter.
Manually harvested and selected both at the vineyard and in the cellar, 40% of this Verdejo from Rueda was fermented in stainless steel tanks, where it was also aged for 8 months on its lees. The remaining 60% was fermented in French oak barrels and aged on its lees for the same time with periodic stirrings.
Finally, Nisia 2017 was blended and further aged for a brief period of time prior to its bottling.
Drink this white wine from Rueda from now to 2022.
The white wine Nisia has a clean, bright, pale yellow colour with golden tinges.
Well-defined and seductive, this white wine by Jorge Ordóñez shows some primary aromas of white and yellow fruit, aromatic herbs and some touches of tropical fruit and dry earth.
This old-vines Verdejo is intense and creamy, evoking notions of exotic fruit and yellow fruit, some mineral undertones and remembrances of aromatic herbs. A white wine from Rueda with a well-balanced acidity and long, slightly bitter finish.
|Our personal opinion||
A remarkable value, Nisia 2017 delivers complexity and local character at an affordable price.
