Telmo Rodriguez Basa Blanco 2015 is a blend of native Spanish grapes Viura and Verdejo grapes grown on gravelly limestone soils. If you love Sauvignon Blanc, this fresh, zippy and globally-admired dry white is for you.
Dynamic Telmo Rodriguez is one of Spain’s greatest winemakers. He is dedicated to the preservation of indigenous grapes and regional winemaking traditions. Basa, named for the ‘baso’ dry-farmed bush vines of central Spain, is one of the world’s greatest white wine values. Made from a blend of Viura and Verdejo grapes grown on gravelly limestone soils, it is an arrestingly fresh and juicy wine that is super-adaptable with food. Reminiscent of the flavours and brightness of Sauvignon Blanc, try this globally-admired dry white with scallop ceviche, chicken with tarragon, white fish, or just chilled in a glass.
