More Info

This rose is a blend of Tempranillo and Syrah. It is made using a combination of direct pressing and the saignee method and vinified in stainless steel tanks. The juice is then allowed to ferment alone at a low temperature (18 to 20°C) to preserve the maximum amount of aroma.

 

Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate, Sept/2020

2019 -

"The very pale 2019 Honoro Vera Rosado is equal parts Tempranillo and Syrah produced in a commercial and approachable way and with moderate alcohol. It fermented in stainless steel and was bottled unoaked. It is serious but quaffable, straightforward and with simple, clean aromas and flavors. 120,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2020."

Gismondi on Wine, May/2018

2017 -

"This Jumilla rosado delivers as expected, with punchy, juicy, fruity and spicy watermelon, raspberry and cherry fruits, ample spice and a deeper, shining hue. This is tempranillo based, with a dose of syrah (for spice) and a bump of sugar (for commercial appeal). Thankfully, alcohol is moderate, as is acidity, holding this welcoming for an ice bucket and spicy prawns, or red-pepper grilled pasta/veg."

"Full-bodied Spanish dry rose has been reinvented and this is a good example. With more freshness, it is brighter than these wines used to be a generation ago. Where is the paella? Drink now or in 2018."

"I'll admit that the glitzy label tricked me into thinking this would be sweet. I was pleasantly surprised to be proven wrong. And even though it hails from the sultry reaches of southern Spain, alcohol is kept in check (12.5%). A blend of Tempranillo and Syrah, it possesses lovely nuances of melon, raspberry and wild thyme. Made for grazing on simple tapas."
