Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Basa was the first wine ever to be produced by the Compania, and derives its name from the country's ancient 'baso' (goblet)-shaped bushvines. The Verdejo and Viura blend from Rueda 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."


90/100 Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage)
"The 2015 Basa is a blend of Verdejo with 10% Viura from limestone and gravel soils fermented in stainless steel and bottled unoaked. This is their 20th vintage in Rueda, and they have completely removed the Sauvignon from the blend in the last three/four years. They like the expression of Viura in Rueda, where the soils are quite appropriate for white wines. This is quite open and very clean, with the freshly cut grass aromas, hints of lemons and a touch of licorice. The palate is fresh and balanced, with the typical slightly bitter notes in the finish. 540,000 bottles produced."


Paul Tudor MW, noted.co.nz, May 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"This wine is predominantly verdejo, a grassy, herbal white variety that thrives in north-central Spain. Minty, leafy, citrus notes lead onto a textured, mid-weight palate. The firm, precise acidity gives this wine plenty of bite — a funky, savoury white to impress your wine-buff friends with."
