Telmo Rodriguez Basa Rueda Blanco 2017

Rueda, Castilla-Leon, SpainThe signature of top producers is consistency, and this medium-bodied blend of verdejo/viura/sauvignon blanc from Rueda delivers that and more. Expect a fruity style (well, as fruity as Euro whites can be) with mandarin, peach, and assorted orchard fruits on the nose. The palate is more of the same with lime pith, melon, pineapple and spice that finishes juicy and tangy with a twist of chalk for texture. The Rueda region remains undervalued as a producer of fresh white wine, which allows Telmo Rodriguez to build his ‘basa’ or basement/ foundation with this larger production white.Tasted: 27 June 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 19.99 private wine shops 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
