Our Top Picks from Spain

f

We’ve had Jorge Ordoñez wines on our shelves for years now and watched as their business has grown to not only represent some of the best wines in Spain, but also represent the heritage of Spanish wine and gastronomy as vineyards the world over are being replanted to “international” varietals. From Viura and Xarello, to Hondurrabi Zuri, Bobal, and Mersegura, Jorge Ordoñez is on a mission to show that “what makes Spain unique is an extensive history of viticulture and enology, and a wealth of extremely old vineyards of indigenous varieties”.

Over the past few weeks the FranksWine Crew tasted through a pretty extensive lineup of Jorge wines to revisit some old selections and also try some new bottles that we were entirely unfamiliar with - the goal being to put together a line-up of wines that represent some of the lesser known regions and varieties of Spain. Well, we nailed it for you! We’ve always had a soft spot for the black sheep and the odd ball wines of the world - just because something isn’t mainstream doesn’t mean it’s not ridiculously delicious,and that was exactly what we were after knowing full well that we would find all that and more with Ordoñez wines.

Nisia 2016 Verdejo
Regularly Priced at $16.99
$12.06 with a 12-pack Sampler

b1

Nisia represents the quality that Verdejo can achieve when it’s truly loved. Hand-harvested into small baskets and fermented in a combination of large used oak and stainless steel to retain the super fresh quality of the fruit followed by 8 months on the lees to round things out and add a creaminess to perfectly balance the super bright acid. Nisia is all about ripe fruit, beautiful florality, super refreshing acid and minerality, it is the maximum expression of the Verdejo variety.


Breca 2017 Rosé
Regularly Priced at $12.99
$9.22 with a 12-pack Sampler

b2

Breca is a spectacular example of Garnacha rosè made from 50+ year old vines. Extremely dry weather and diurnal swings produce a rosè that is really concentrated in flavor with super linear acid. Breca is made from the original clones of the Garnacha varietal in Calatayud and like so many of the Jorge Ordoñez wines is a beautiful example of it’s particular style.


Rio Madre 2016 Graciano Rioja
Regularly Priced at $14.99
$10.64 with a 12-pack Sampler

b3

Rio Madre is the result of the efforts of Jorge Ordóñez and Bodegas Ilurce to produce a 100% Graciano wine from D.O.C. Rioja. Mostly known for its role in adding complexity to the wines of Rioja Alta and Alavesa, Graciano is a varietal that thrives in Rioja Baja due to the hotter climate. Graciano is a late ripening variety that typically cannot ripen fully in Rioja Alta and Alavesa. Ordóñez discovered the quality of vineyards and Graciano in Rioja Baja, and partnered with Bodegas Ilurce to produce a 100% Graciano wine, a super rare treat from Spain that is wildly underappreciated. Dark brambly fruit, slightly spicy, superbly silky tannins. Good luck finding another Graciano this delicious.

Triton 2016 Tinta de Toro
Regularly Priced at $19.99
$14.19 with a 12-pack Sampler

b4

During the Middle Ages, Toro was the Spain’s most famous winemaking region. It has been mentioned in literature by Alfonso IX the King of León, Juan Ruiz the Archpriest of Hita, Quevedo, Luis de Góngora, and Miguel de Cervantes. In 14th Century Sevilla the sale of any foreign wine was prohibited, save the wines of Toro, and thank god they’re still around. These wines were also the wines that accompanied Spanish explorers to the New World. The wine is rich and fruity, characterized by smooth, integrated tannin, and a long, elegant finish, the result of extremely dark, sweet berries.
