c. £5-7; 12.5%

This one a product of the Wine & Cheese Club’s Spanish wine & tapas night. First real foray into white Rioja for me and very enjoyable; easy drinking, light and crisp, and a good price / quality ratio. 100% Viura grape variety. Lightly vanilla’d aromas with pineapple and tropical fruit. Pale straw colour. Flavours of apple (hint of baked apple, to a degree) cut through by fresh, dry acidity. Dryness occasionally a bit too dry. Overall very drinkable.
