Rueda Wine

for this region?

 

Rueda is part of the Castilla-y-Leon region, northwest of Madrid and south of the Duero river. It was pretty much wiped out by Phylloxera in the first part of the 20th century, and became mostly bulk wine producing until bodegas from neighboring regions took interest to replant grapes since the region’s mild climate is so conducive. 
 
Verdejo is the main grape cultivated. This makes dry, fruity, and refreshing wines that are affordable, crowd-pleasing and excellent for parties. Small amounts of Macabeo (Viura) and Sauvignon Blanc are sometimes added as blending components. Some Sauv Blanc produced as a varietal release is also gaining popularity. Very little red from Tempranillo is also produced here.

  • Telmo Rodriguez Basa Blanco 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Rueda of this quality and price is a treat - the nose is full of perfume from sweet garden flowers plus a hefty infusion of peach. On the tongue there is spritely brightness - acidity, apple, and more peach; the mouth-feel is excellent with a well balanced, slightly dry entry. Finish is rich and of medium length. Excellent bargain. 89 points. Read More

  • Trascampanas Verdejo 'Bodega Gotica" 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Nutty and fairly deep on the nice with the sweetness of raw nut meats accented ... your mouth at once. Like the Rueda from TrasCampanas this gains more nuance and complexity with some air, gaining a little banana skin bitterness to contrast with thh fruit and the acid does firm up the backend nicely but this lacks the nuance and length of tha...
