Tres españoles entre los veinte mejores vinos baratos, según VinePair

Elegir los veinte mejores vinos por debajo de veinte dólares (precio en Estados Unidos) ha sido el reto asumido por Keith Beavers en la revista VinePair. “Para mí -señala el autor-, son algunos de los mayores éxitos en el mercado del vino: botellas baratas, increíbles y, a menudo, simples que están bien hechas y se combinan con cada ocasión”. Una relación en la que ha incluido a tres marcas españolas. 

Best cheap red wines 

  • Bodegas Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha $17 (Rating 88)

Real talk, this is the first bottle I bought when I decided to dive into wine and start my own wine blog (when we were still getting used to the word “blog”). It’s as solid now as it was then. It’s deep and dark, with a smooth palate that is sweetened by high alcohol. But that heat is blended well so you can enjoy the smells of spicy vanilla. BBQ, please.

  • Bodegas Ontañón Crianza $15 (Rating 88)

Welcome to Rioja, a place that releases aged wines that are subtle, balanced, and extremely affordable. It’s one of the only wine regions from which you can get an older wine, between five and 10 years, for around $20. This is a 2017 vintage at 15 bucks, and it’s awesomely smooth with active acidity that promotes earthy cherries up to the brain. It’s great for a cheese-and-cured-meat-plate kind of evening.

Best cheap white wines

  • Bodegas Avancia Cuvée de O Godello $18 (Rating 90)

Welcome to the refreshing world of Godello. I listed a more concentrated and expensive example on “The 28 Best White Wines for 2021,” but this option is affordable and just as tasty — so now there’s no excuse not to try this awesome grape. It smells like limes and pears, with a broad unoaked Chardonnay mouthfeel. The acidity is bounding about in the glass, keeping things active and letting you enjoy a slight depth. Come on in.
