Tasting Notes

New York and Spain have had ties for centuries, as the Spanish Benevolent Society can attest. Ismael Gozalo has created this rosé made from Tempranillo exclusively for New York. Once destemmed, the wine rests on the skins for a few hours to give color and aromatics. A very small amount of Verdejo is added for freshness. Pair this medium-bodied dry rosé with salmorejo and clams.

Staff Pick Notes

This rosé from Microbio is exuberant and mouth watering. It's an un-filtered wine from a natural-oriented producer. The color is a glowing coral flecked with scarlet. It's made primarily from Tempranillo that is de-stemmed and macerated on the skins for a few hours to give it a punchy, aromatic kick. A small percentage of Verdejo is added to charge up the freshness and acidity. What comes in the bottle is a remarkably finessed wine. The flavors on the palate are tangy and spicy with notes of salted strawberries, red gummy candies, and guava preserves. The rounded qualities and texture give it so much dimension. Pair this party in a bottle with sheep's milk cheeses, manzanilla olives, and salted pistachios.

In Rioja, Navarra, and the Ribera del Duero (which have the...

The best bottles are powerful and ageworthy, and are beginning to fetch prices you'd never have expected from Spanish wines just a few years ago. Tempranillo is often used in blends with Bordeaux grapes such as...
