WHITE – 2015 Basa Blanco DO Rueda
2015 Basa Blanco DO Rueda, Telmo Rodriguez, Spain
Varietals: Verdejo 90% & Viura 10%
Basa was the first wine ever to be produced by the Compania, and derives its name from the country’s ancient ‘baso’ (goblet)-shaped bush vines. Intense floral aromatics, freshness and wonderful texture are the result of the high elevation plantings in lime and gravel soils, with good drainage, that give rise to some of the best quality white wine grapes in Spain. The pear and apple flavors are crisp and juicy in this lively white, while quinine and lees-y notes add a savory element. The palate is fresh and balanced, with the typical slightly bitter notes in the finish.
“This is quite open and very clean, with the freshly cut grass aromas, hints of lemons and a touch of licorice. The palate is fresh and balanced, with the typical slightly bitter notes in the finish.” – Luis Gutiérrez, Robert Parker
