Jorge Ordonez No. 1 Selección Especial 2015 375ml
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Seleccion Especial (#1) comes from the steep slate mountain vineyards of Malaga, where the yields range from 0.36 to 0.40 tons of fruit per acre, all of it Muscat from the clone known as Muscat de Alexandria. This wine spent eight months on its lees in stainless steel, and takes nearly 4 kilos of grapes to make one 375ml bottle. It has a light color and an extraordinary fragrant nose of exotic fruits and spring flowers followed by a zesty, light, but intense Muscat. The real challenge is what to compare this wine with. For my part, drinking it by itself as an aperitif, or at the end of a meal, seems the correct way to treat this complex, very intriguing and historic, slightly sweet wine. The candied fruit character and bright acidity balances out the wine's sweetness. So there is nothing cloying or heavy about it.
Wine EnthusiastDon't let the near nonexistence of color fool you, because this is a nice racy-sweet Moscatel. Aromas of citrus peel and air freshener are mild, while this feels juicy. Tropical fruit and citrus flavors finish lean except for a touch of viscosity.
Wine SpectatorLively flavors of peach, kiwi and tangerine mingle in this fruity white, which is lightly sweet, but citrusy acidity maintains freshness and balance. Drink now. 500 cases made.
