Telmo Rodriguez Basa Rueda Blanco 2019

Rueda, Castilla-Leon, SpainEvery year we say the signature of top producers is consistency, and that sums up Telmo Rodrigues and this medium-bodied blend of verdejo/viura/sauvignon blanc from Rueda. Not exuberantly fruity, but intense nonetheless, with mandarin, peach, melon, and spice with a juicy, tangy twist of chalk for texture and minerality. 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. Fine value.
