90-point rated Spanish wines: $8.99
If you haven't tried Honora Vera wines, now is a great time. Produced in Spain by the esteemed Bodegas Juan Gil, these wines are loved by critics and at this price, they're a steal! What's more both wines pair perfectly with ANYTHING from the grill.
Some background on the grapes, if you're unfamiliar:
Monastrell in Spain is called Mourvèdre in France and sometimes Mataro in Australia and California. It's produces a purple-black fruited wine with good body and intensity, somewhat akin to Cabernet or Merlot.
Garnacha a.k.a. Grenache produces a lively fruit-driven wine with a lot of ripe berry flavors, like a plump Pinot Noir.
