FRESH, DRY WHITES

Fresh, dry whites - RUEDA, Baso, Palacios. Spain

2018 RUEDA, Basa, Telmo Rodriguez. Spain

Bin: 90
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: Rueda in north east Spain is now the go-to place for fresh, light, consistently reliable Spanish dry whites. The key is the ability of the Verdejo grape to cope with the long, hot summers and still retain freshness and vivacity.
Grape Variety: 90% Verdejo and 10% Viura, fermented cool and bottled early.
Producer: From the UK agent, FMV:
"Telmo Rodriguez is one of the greatest of Spanish winemakers. In a fashion not dissimilar to Alavaro Palacios, Telmo travelled and learnt for many years before returning home to his Riojan homestead to energise the great house of Remelluri. One should not overlook, however, his other properties, which explore some of the lesser known areas of Spain and in each case seek to make superlative and characterful wines."
Old Bridge Rating: Brilliant alternative to Sauvignon Blanc; very easy to love.
Press Reviews: "It’s the streamlined shape of this elegant wine that makes it such a pleasure. It’s made by Telmo Rodriguez from (mostly) verdejo, sometimes dubbed the Spanish Sauvignon, though I find it more nettle and less shouty. Very stylish." Victoria Moore, The Telegraph, March 2019
