Are you having tapas? Or dancing some Flamenco? Or maybe settling in for el Classico? Well, if you're going classic Spanish, then this is the wine to accompany it. Silky smooth, rich Rioja that's a brilliant example of this famous Spanish wine.
The Four Point Lowdown
- Juicy, juicy black fruits and a touch of vanilla
- So smooth and juicy one bottle is never enough
- Tapas - anything else is just rude
- Perfect for those who enjoy classics done really, really well
About this wine
This is a top notch Rioja even before you consider the price. It is silky smooth with red and black berry fruits, the oak is subtle but definitely there, it's a classic, but a classic done VERY well.
This is what we would call a wine Chameleon, it suits most if not all drinking situations. Whether it be a dinner party, a cosy night in front of the fire or keeping you company in the bath, it just works. A trusty red that can transport you, your guests or your night to another world.
