1. 2015 Bodegas Carlos Serres Rioja Blanco (Rioja, Spain) – This white wine is a combination of 85% Viura and 15% Tempranillo Blanco fermented entirely in stainless steel. Although Viura is quite common for White Rioja, this is the first time we’ve ever encountered Tempranillo Blanco, a natural mutation of Red Tempranillo that was discovered in 1988. All of that aside, the wine is delicious and offers loads of quality at a ridiculously reasonable price. Dry, zesty, aromatically engaging and perfect for summer, you’ll want to buy more than just one of these.
2. 2014 Monte Oton Garnacha (Campo de Borja, Spain) – This is a Table Wine classic! We’ve continuously stocked it since day one, July 29, 2010 to be exact. 100% Garnacha from hillside vineyards planted at an elevation of 1,200 feet on the southern side of the Moncayo mountain range, it represents one of the great red wine values in the world. No oak is used in this totally naked red. This fresh, medium to full-bodied, supple-textured, hedonistic as well as intellectually challenging wine should drink well for 2-3 years.
3. 2014 Envinate Albahra (Almansa, Spain) – It’s our new Wine of the Week, and it’s one of the most distinctly delicious Spanish reds we’ve ever stocked. 100% Garnacha Tintorera (aka Alicante Bouschet) from older, high altitude, organically farmed vineyards in Southeastern Spain, it is wonderfully fresh, soft, juicy and complex with notes of ripe red fruits, savory earth, and spice.
