Basa White comes from beautiful Rueda appellation and is made mostly with the queen grape variety of the region, the Verdejo, but blended in this 2017 vintage with a percentage of Viura. The mix is absolutely particular offering freshness, balance and subtility to the wine. Citrus parfums are dominant in the nose and there are some notes of apple, peaches and fennel as well. In the mouth, it is a white with a lot of texture, corpulent and savory.
It is always for me a nice surprise to taste the wines from this talented winemaker, and I am gladly discovering now more and more the ones that he elaborates outside and beyond his native and prestigious land Rioja.
In this Basa Blanco, once again, the authentic Hispanic roots and the specificities of the different terroirs and
richness are very well captured in the bottle!
