Winemaker Notes

Nisia Las Suertes is a brilliant straw color with green glimmers. A unique, exceptional wine obtained from an equally unique and exceptional vineyard. Vineyards of this age and quality are extremely rare.

Critical Acclaim

WS 92
Wine Spectator
This bold white is full-bodied and exuberant, with exotic flavors of pineapple, mango and coconut that stretch out on a rich frame, but remain firmly supported by juicy tangerine acidity. Atypical but has depth and balance. Drink now through 2022.

James Suckling
Ground lemon-peel and grapefruit aromas here. The palate is nicely compressed with some good textural interest. Gently nutty to close.

Jeb Dunnuck
A deeper, more serious wine compared to the straight Nisia cuvée, the 2016 Nisia Las Suertes is also 100% Verdejo and spent 12 months sur lie in a mix of French oak puncheons and demi-muids. It offers terrific notes of buttered citrus, pineapple, white flowers, mint, and hints of salty minerality. Vibrant, concentrated, and rich, yet with bright acidity and a great finish, it's a beautifully layered, balanced white that will shine on the table. It's impressive.

Bodegas Ordonez – Rueda, Spain
Bodegas Ordonez – Rueda  Winery Image

Verdejo is one of Spain’s most historic white grapes, as it has been in production since the Roman times, several thousand years ago. After over fifteen years as the lead producer of quality Verdejo in Spain, Ordóñez chose Puras, Valladolid, as the best appellation within Rueda for growing Verdejo. This isolated corner of the D.O. is home to sandy soils intermixed with river stones that were deposited tens of thousands of years ago when the Duero river was several hundred miles wide. Due to the sandy soils, this sub-appellation of Rueda, shaped like Italy’s boot, resisted the phylloxera. Bodegas Ordóñez takes advantage of this unique terroir to produce wine from its ungrafted vineyards, the oldest of which was planted in 1885. Jorge’s philosophy is to age all of our wines sur lie and barrel fermented in both stainless steel and large format, mostly used French oak.

Rueda is located along the banks of the Duero River in Spain’s Castilla y León region, just a 2-hour drive north of Madrid. While winemaking in this area goes back to the 12th century, it was in the 1980s that the region was granted Denominación de Origen (D.O.) status. Today, more than 70 wineries call Rueda home. This national favorite is the top-selling white wine in Spain.

Notable facts Rueda’s main grape variety, Verdejo, gets it distinct complexity from stressful growing conditions and mineral-rich soil. Think of Verdejo as a fuller-bodied and more aromatic Sauvignon Blanc. A lush and smooth character with perfectly balanced acidity means Rueda wines pair well with seafood, fresh salads and spicy food, but are also great on their own.

Captivating and full of character, Verdejo grows with great success in Rueda, Spain and virtually nowhere else in Europe. It has become so trendy in Spain since the turn of the century that plantings have also increased tremendously. Somm Secret—Contrary to what some may think, it is actually not related to the Portugese variety with a very similar name, Verdelho. In fact, DNA profiling suggests it may be a sibling of Godello, another native of NW Spain.
