    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Verdejo, Viura and Sauvignon Blanc blend has year after year been named one of Spain's and the world's great white wine values. The intense floral aromatics, freshness and wonderful texture are the result of the high elevation plantings in lime and gravel soils, with good drainage, that give rise to some of the best quality white wine grapes in Spain.

    In 2010 Basa is an 85% Verdejo, 12% Viura and 3% Sauvignon Blanc blend, with a touch more Viura than in previous vintages. 2010 was an abundant vintage, though the harvest took place slightly later this year due to a bout of September rain. As always, it is a fantastically refreshing yet serious bottle of wine, with a range of aromas and flavors from stony mineral notes to citrus to tropical fruit.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Light yellow-gold. Spicy aromas of orange, dried pear and tarragon. Dry and taut, with bitter pear skin and orange pith flavors lifted by tangy acidity. The dry finish shows good clarity and a faint hard edge, with the pear note repeating.
