Lime and grapefruit flavors are mouthwatering in this juicy white. Fennel and pear accents keep it interesting. Firm and crisp. Drink now.
Tangerine and lime flavors are crisp and lively in this fresh, juicy white. Hints of coconut and vanilla add interest. Drink now.
There are 15,000 cases of the 2001 Basa, a tank-fermented, light-bodied, fragrant blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Verdejo, and Viura. Mineral, grass, and fig notes dominate this crisp, dry wine.
One of the tastiest, best-made value whites in the world remains Basa, a blend of Verdejo, Viura and Sauvignon Blanc. In the 2002 version, winemaker Telmo Rodriguez has managed to capture the purest grapefruit, passion fruit and citrus flavors, all the while creating a wine with body, bracing acids and simple joy. A surefire apéritif, and also a fine bet for salads of fish.
Everyone's favorite summer sipper is as good as ever in 2007. It's 50% Verdejo, 40% Viura and 10% Sauvignon Blanc, and together you can get a ton of steely citrus and mineral aromas and flavors adding up to endless refreshment possibilities. Spritzy, zesty and a perennial bargain among aromatic whites.
Flowery, with lime sorbet zest, subtle mineral and honeydew melon juiciness. Light in body, this Viura/Sauvignon Blanc blend is crisp and dry. Quality-wise, a smart substitute for New Zealand or domestic Sauvignon Blanc.
An area known for wine production since the Middle Ages, Rueda produces fresh and lively whites from the Viura and Verdejo grapes that represent terrific values. The 2002 Basa brims with bright pear and apple fruit and is light and clean on the palate with a harmonious finish.
