2009 Valleclaro Rosé Valles de Benavente (Previously $13)

SKU #1056746

From the newly created D.O. of Valles de Benavente in the Castilla y Leon region, this delicious rosé is made from 100% prieto picudo grapes. It has all of the intense, sweet strawberry and cherry fruits of a garnacha based rosé, without feeling too heavy on the palate. Refreshing and meant to be drunk well chilled in vast quantities, with chorizo, cheeses, pimientos de padron, fried potatoes, and any other tapa you can conjure up.

The delicious full bodied Valleclaro reminds me of the Tavel that I used to drink when I first started in the wine business. Those Tavel's were full, rich, round roses that were never sweet or hot from high alcohol. It is amazing to me that this is made from Prieto Picudo (a varietal unknown to me until yesterday) instead of Grenache! This is an excellent barbeque or picnic rose, and I plan on putting more than one empty bottle of this into the recycling bin at our local park this year!
Top Value!

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
