Looking first at the 2018 Nisia, which is all Verdjo brought up in neutral barrels, this lively yet concentrated white has a richer nose of salted citrus, honeyed minerals, and toasted spices. These a carry to a medium-bodied white with a layered mouthfeel, plenty of fruit, and a terrific spine of acidity. It's beautifully done, has a touch of background oak, and is going to shine on the dinner table.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Bodegas Ordoñez Nisia is a juicy Verdejo with almost a New World style about it. TASTING NOTES: This wine is brisk and lively with juicy aromas and flavors of dried earth and plenty of pretty fruit. Pair it with a chicken salad with romaine, pickled scallions, a drizzle of sesame oil and a few sprinkles of dried chiles. (Tasted: July 21, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

A delicious verdejo with dried-apple and pear character and hints of dried pineapple. Medium body. Fruity finish. Drink now.
