External Reviews for Bodegas Telmo Rodriguez Basa
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.
Light yellow. Pear, apple and cut grass on the nose, with a suave floral quality. Light-bodied and refreshingly bitter, displaying crisp citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a gentle mineral bite. Finishes clean, with good lift and persistence.
This firm, polished white is shy at first, but reveals smoky, vanilla, pear and almond flavors that open on the palate and linger on the finish. Modern style. Drink now through 2005.
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.
A mixture of Verdejo, Sauvignon Blanc and Viura, this Spanish bargain features a bouquet of tropical fruit: mangos, guava and pineapple. A light to medium body with adequate acidity follows through into a long, melony finish. a great match with boquerones (marinated anchovies).
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.
Lime and grapefruit flavors are mouthwatering in this juicy white. Fennel and pear accents keep it interesting. Firm and crisp. Drink now.
