The Wine Spectator

2015 Honoro Vera Rosado, Spain
On Sale $7.99
Pale orange. Lively, focused scents of fresh strawberry and tangerine are underscored by a chalky mineral element. Taut, dry and focused, conveying good lift and bite and no excess fat. The energetic finish leaves behind a refreshingly bitter berry skin note. Superb value here.
Vinous Media

2015 Garnacha de Fuego Rosado, Spain
On Sale $8.99
The amazing Garnacha de Fuego Rosé is 90% Old Vine Grenache and 10% Viura, a white indigenous grape of the region. This is given minimal skin contact, pressed and fermented in very low temperatures, then bottled for its freshness. Delicate pink color, with notes of wet stones, strawberries and cranberries, the wine is fresh, light-bodied, dry and just a killer value. Drink it over the next several years.
