Tesco Finest Viña del Cura Rioja Gran Reserva – £12

Viña del Cura Rioja 2015 Denominación de Origen Calificada Gran Reserva, produced in Spain

This intensely concentrated Rioja has been barrel aged in fine oak for a minimum average of 24 months before maturing for a minimum of 36 months in bottle at the Baron de Ley winery. Hand harvested Tempranillo grapes create this premium wine, full of mellow black fruits, hints of vanilla and exotic spice. This rich wine complements hearty meaty dishes, roast lamb, beef or game.

Peter Morrell, Editor comments “I have tried the Viña del Cura Rioja 2015 and it is exceptional. The long barrel and bottle aging has created a wine that has intense dark fruit and spice aromas on the nose. As it moves to the palate the flavours are alive with cherries and plum, oaky vanilla, leather, and chocolate. Very well balanced tannins make the wine ultra smooth in the mouth, and the finish is long and fruity. Enjoy with autumn casseroles, steaks, hearty pastas, and strong cheese.”

Arbousset Lirac – £12

Lirac is a cru from the Southern Rhone Valley in France

The pebbles and sandy soil add exceptional complexity to the wine. This cru produces powerful, full-bodied, fruity wines, with an element of spice.

An impeccably balanced wine, it goes very well with roasted, grilled or simmered red meats, cheeses and chocolate desserts.
