Telmo uses wonderful Verdejo plantings on lime and gravel soils that result in wines with intense floral aromatics, wonderful freshness, and serious weight and texture.
Telmo Rodriguez is considered one of Spain’s most talented and prolific winemakers who champions the revival of native varietals and underappreciated regions with superior terroir. He studied viticulture and oenology at the University of Bordeaux and was the winemaker at Remelluri, his family winery in Rioja, before setting off on his own in 1990. His focus is in the vineyard where he farms biodynamically, has revived the cultivation of bush vines and replants exclusively with massale selections. Telmo is also a remarkably democratic winemaker who is as proud of his everyday wines as he is of his rare and limited bottlings.
|A blend of Verdejo, Viura and Sauvignon that has progressively become almost entirely based on Verdejo, with a touch of Viura and with the 2010, 3% Sauvignon Blanc.
