Telmo Rodríguez El Transistor Verdejo 2019

Telmo Rodríguez's 'El Transistor' is a pure and truly authentic expression of Verdejo grapes sourced from low-yielding, very old bush vines located in the Rueda region of Spain. Adopting simple and respectful winemaking practices, alongside Telmo's 20 years of experience and knowledge of this area, make El Transistor Verdejo a very consistent wine of great complexity. El Transistor derives its unusual name from Telmo's inspired solution of strategically placing a radio in the vineyards to ward off local wild-boar from eating the delicious fruit. Fermented and aged in wooden barrels and foudres of different sizes for up to 9 months, this wine is restrained and elegant with fresh green apples on the nose, accompanied by notes of bitter lemon and a floral, lime-blossom lift. The wine is still youthful, fresh and light with white peach and a grapefruit twist. There is a subtle, structured minerality which comes through as stony pebbles with a savoury hint. Very focused, there is a gentle smoothness to the texture which carries the wine forward across the palate towards a refreshing, citrus-pith finish. This would be lovely to drink soon but will also develop and broaden in complexity with age.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
