2019 Honorio Rubio Tremendus Garnacha Viura Clarete

Rioja, Spain

Shimmering Spanish rosé for adventurous drinkers.




About The Wine

Honorio Rubio is an innovator, enthusiastically embracing his region’s long history with high quality pink wine. And this Clarete is quite the crossover wine.

Artfully bringing together white Viura and red Garnacha, it has the texture and mouthfeel of red with the freshness and fragrance of white. Pushing the margins of texture, there’s pretty pink grapefruit and pomegranate, muddled with the nutty, the complex and the cloudy.

Serve this with range of strong snacks; spiced, smoked or salted. This is Riojan rosé worthy of your contemplation.

About Honorio Rubio

Honorio Rubio works in a specific sector of southern Rioja – the Najerilla Valley, which favours high quality Garnacha.

A conservator of marginal historical styles, notably the Clarete pinks of which he is the leading proponent, he's also an innovator working at the margins of textural enhancement in both Viura whites and Claretes.

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
