''Verdejo is the grape varietal that has put the little region of Rueda on the world wine map, where it’s made into some of Spain’s finest white wines.'' Laura Scal, Decanter Magazine
Hi Folks, For lovers of textual Spanish whites; the region of Rueda in Castilla y Leon is quickly becoming one of the centre-piece wine regions for this nuanced style. What sets Rueda apart from many other regions is that its main focus is solely the Verdejo white varietal which makes up a staggering 93% of the entire production. With centuries of tradition and a growing demand for the varietal internationally, now is the time to get on board before the price escalates as we all know it will. And just like a lot of things in life, timing is everything and we've been very fortunate to secure an allocation of the brand new 2020 release of the Telmo Rodriguez Basa Verdejo at Australia's best price of just $27.50 which is quickly gaining serious traction with the international wine press noting that this is a white wine to get your hands on!
''Every year we say the signature of top producers is consistency, and that sums up Telmo Rodriguez and his medium-bodied Verdejo from Rueda is no exception. Intense with mandarin, peach, melon, and spice with a juicy, tangy twist of texture and minerality. The Rueda region remains undervalued. Fine value. Real wine.'' Anthony Gismondi
''Fresh citrus fruits, succulent herbs and white flowers on the incisive, mineral-accented nose. Energetic on the palate, offering juicy Meyer lemon and green apple flavours. Finishes on a repeating mineral note, with very good persistence and lingering fennel and lemon pith qualities.” Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media
Now, if your only previous experience to Spanish whites is Albariño (and their is nothing wrong with that) than this will be a great opportunity to broaden your Northern Spanish palate with a vibrant 2020 release from a talented winemaker in Telmo Rodriguez at Australia's best price.
