- Telmo Rodriguez Rueda Basa Blanco 2014 Product #29815 (In Stock)
A sizzling summer Spanish white from 92% Verdejo and 8% Viura from old head-trained vines - called "Basa" in Spanish. Fresh aromas of green apple, pink citrus and a touch of fennel open the show. Then ripe orchard and citrus fruit on the palate with medium-body and a refreshing, orange and apple-inflected finish. A very nice value!
- Bodegas Naia Verdejo Rueda 2014 Product #29848 (In Stock)
Another great vintage for this benchmark Rueda Verdejo from old vines (30-90 years) with about 10% of the wine aged in French oak. Intense aromas of lemon, lime, smoky mineral and fresh herb lead to a mouthful of round orchard fruit - peach, apricot, yellow apple - with accents of fresh flowers and a touch of pear. Long on the palate and juicy finish where peach and pear skin notes linger nicely over citrusy acids.
"Pear and apple flavors mingle with toast and mineral notes in this polished, modern white, which shows depth and focus, with firm acidity and a smoky finish."Wine Spectator 89 points
