Telmo Rodriguez Basa Rueda Blanco 2014

Rueda, Castilla-Leon, SpainThis medium bodied blend of verdejo/viura/sauvignon blanc from Rueda appears a touch more fruity in 2014 (a little less Euro) with heady mandarin and peach before a ripe, orchard fruit-led palate. Lime pith, melon, pineapple rind and spice project across the palate with the help of juicy, tangy acidity before receding in to its chalky finish. The Rueda region remains undervalued as a producer of fresh white wine which allows Telmo Rodriguez to build his companies ‘basa’ or basement/ foundation with this larger production white allowing the talented winemaker to pursue his dreams and stay profitable.Tasted: 31 December 2015Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Treve RingPrices: BC 17.99 BCLS AB 20.00 private wine shops ON 16.99 consignment - Lifford Wine Agency MB 20.00 Banville and Jones Producer: Compañia de Vinos Telmo RodriguezDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
