Characteristics of El Transistor

Wine by Telmo Rodríguez produced in the region of Rueda, where they already produce Basa. This wine is born as a result of the curiosity and research of Telmo. His objective is to extract the pureness and the tradition from the Verdejo.

Why the name of El Transistor? To deter the wild boars that visited the vineyards of the region during the night, they placed a transistor next to the vineyards.

Produced from old vineyards, they continue to use a recovered traditional method, characterized by a gentle fermentation with local yeasts and a subsequent ageing for 9 months in oak barrels of different sizes.

An authentic wine, with great complexity and elegance, where the wood does not take over.
Serve at 10.0ºC

Tasting notes El Transistor

The 2017 vintage has been rated excellent by the regulatory council. A year marked by drought and high temperatures that brought the harvest date forward. Autumn began with temperatures somewhat higher than normal but with a normal rainfall. It was not until late November when temperatures dropped. The beginning of the year arrived with low temperatures and scarce rainfall. Suddenly, temperatures began to rise and accelerated the growth and phenolic development of the vines. At the end of April, there was an intense frost, a severe climatic accident that reduced the harvest by 20%. Once again, May registered very high temperatures that sped up the flowering and consequently brought the harvest date forward, becoming the earliest to date. A vintage where all the aromatic components of the grape have been extracted and the acidity has been preserved, essential to give freshness to the wine.
The 2016 vintage, rated as very good, began with an autumn and winter with high temperatures for these seasons that predicted an acceleration of the vines’ growth cycle. At the beginning of the spring, temperatures fell and rainfall returned to normal figures. This fact was translated in an adjustment as far as budding and flowering dates. At the beginning of June, the heat arrived and stayed all summer until the beginning of the harvest. In general terms, it was a rainy and somewhat warm year. The wines of this vintage are characterised for being aromatic and with a good acidity. Where wines in their youth will preserve their aromatic and fresh features.
The 2015 vintage was rated as very good in a year where no climatic accident occurred. Autumn and winter were somewhat warmer than normal but with normal rainfall. In spring, the growth cycle started a few days in advance, but temperatures and rains continued normally until the beginning of summer. Days before the harvest, temperatures became milder and the end of ripening was very good. The wines of this vintage are characterised by a good balance between maturity and acidity. A good aromatic profile that will age correctly.
Sight Pale yellow. Nose Complex aromas, it is clean. It combines citrus notes, green apple and herbal touches. Taste Fruity notes and hints of spice. Good acidity, it is fresh and clean. Long and persistent end.
Sight Yellow colour with waxen edges. Clean and bright wine with glyceric tears. Nose Very subtle nose that forms a well balanced and harmonious aromatic bouquet. The characteristic notes of stone fruits appear along with touches of citrus, elegant creamy notes of pastry and spices (vanilla). The abundant fresh herbal notes round out the nose. Taste Very good, ample and embracing attack. It has a creamy and siky texture and a dry, fresh and tasty, very nice mid palate. Its notes of fruit, citrus and herbs are intense. Excellent acidity and a very persistent finish.
Sight Yellow colour with a pearly sheen. Clean and bright. Nose Elegant and complex aromas of stone fruits (peach) and citrus together with the floral and smoky notes, which contribute to the development of a very expressive wine.

Designation of Origin D.O. Rueda

Winery Telmo Rodríguez

When we talking about the Rueda wines, we are often referring to their white wines. The white wines produced in this region are often made with the Verdejo variety, the main variety of Rueda, planted along the Douro River and its tributaries. Rueda white wines often offer lots of floral notes, scrubland low, delicate aromas and a great acidity given by strong temperature differences between day and night. Apart from white wine, Rueda also produces red wine, often made with the Tempranillo variety.

Imágenes y situación D.O. Rueda

It is safe to say that Telmo Rodríguez has the reputation of being one of the pioneers and best "driving winemakers", that is, winemakers that travel to different areas to produce wines from the same harvest, using only native varieties from their original regions, apart from paying special attention to the recovery of abandoned vineyards. Currently, Telmo Rodríguez, who enjoys being a winemaker more than an oenologist, is known in the wine industry for being one of the promoters of Spanish winemaking.
