Telmo Rodriguez Basa Rueda Verdejo 2021

Telmo Rodriguez

Embodying the contemporary essence of Spain, our grapes are handpicked into small baskets, destemmed, and undergo a cool fermentation in stainless steel. Our commitment to biological viticulture means no added extras in the winery—just impeccable harmony in sugar, acid, and tannin within the berries, meticulously nurtured into balanced wine.

Revel in its exquisite texture, a balance that avoids excessive sweetness, enhanced by a delightful savory minerality and an impressively long finish. And, of course, let's not forget the delectable fruit at its heart.

92 points Decanter-

"Prolific and gifted winemaker Rodríguez juggles fascinating projects all over Spain with remarkably consistent results. His Verdejo (with 10% Viura) is brilliantly done, wonderfully clean and pure, and racy, with just enough of the spicy-bitter twist to complement the juicy tropical fruit flavours and lime."

90 points Wine Advocate-

"The 2021 Basa is the entry-level white from Rueda, produced with 90% Verdejo and 10% Viura, with 13% alcohol and a pH of 3.43. It fermented and matured exclusively in stainless steel. 2021 was very rainy but was healthier than 2020. The wines from that year have good freshness. This is balsamic with notes of bay leaf and a medicinal touch. It's light to medium-bodied, balanced and fresh."
