Telmo Rodriguez, ‘Basa’ Rueda, 2006

~$11USA, 85% Verdejo, 10% Viura, 5% Sauvignon Blanc, Rueda, Spain

I’ve loved Basa since the ’03 vintage, and believe this to be the best expression yet. Vibrant ruby grapefruit, white peaches with slightly under-ripe cherries, along with a mineral streak that you’d expect from a German Riesling. A shockingly good effort that has the guts to impress wine-geeks, and the accessibility to slug and laugh with friends and summertime food.  No brainer white wine, if you see it, buy it.
