Product Description
Details

Produced by Telmo Rodríguez, one of Spain's most prominent winemakers, El Transistor Verdejo is born in the region of La Seca, in the Rueda DO, the cradle of the Verdejo grape.

Thos Spanish white wine is made from old vines grown in poor, rocky-limestone soils with very low levels of organic matter.

Harvest was carried out manually. After that, the grapes were fermented using indigenous yeasts in differently shaped and sized vats and barrels made of wood, concrete and stainless steel.

Once that complex process was finished, El Transistor Verdejo 2017 was aged for 9 months in different containers, blended and aged for a further 6 months in the bottle prior to its release.

This old-vines Verdejo by Telmo Rodriguez will drink excellently over the next 4-5 years.

Production around 12,000 bottles.

Appearance

The wine El Transistor has a pale, bright, clean yellow colour with golden tinges.

Nose

Aromas of juicy white fruit, citrus, white flowers and freshly-cut grass, typical of a Verdejo from Rueda, alongside some elegant, restrained notes coming from the ageing process.

Palate

Lighter and subtler than one might expect, this white wine by Telmo Rodríguez is crisp, dry and really fresh. Remembrances of flowers, white fruit, aromatic herbs and citrus, along with hints of yeasts, some mineral undertones and a dash of spices and smoke. El Transistor has a well-balanced acidity and long, slightly bitter finish, trademark of thegrape.

Our personal opinion

A different Verdejo, El Transistor 2017 is well-structured, terroir-oriented and less fruity than most of the wines made from this variety.

I put this wine up with the best Spanish verdejos. Understated elegance and a sense of terroir. Review by Kendall Jones (Posted on 27/08/2018)

Thelmo Rodrigues is a top Spanish winemaker, and this is one of Spain's top Verdejos. Citrus, stone fruit, it coats the palate and has a smooth, silky body. Great finish. Review by Rod from Surrey (Posted on 23/10/2017)
