If you're in the market for serious, expressive, barrel aged rosé, Honorio Rubio makes a wonderful rendition. His long lees aged rosé is a classical local Rioja style known locally as clarete: a blend of 60% Garnacha and 40% Viura, which combines red fruit with Viura's focused acidity and in this case, a lovely peach skin quality as well. Served with top quality ibérico, it makes for a memorable special occasion food and wine pairing.
