Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

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.

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.
Pictures and situation 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.
