The Mistress of Wine Recommends:
Navajas Blanco Crianza Rioja 2015 Spain
A very tasty oaked white Rioja that I yet again, tried at a friend's house at the weekend! Spicy, medium-bodied and beautifully textured with plump fruit and fragrant oak and very good value at £8.95. Superb with a number of different dishes from roast chicken, fish pie or Asian fruit. Highly recommended.
Baron de Ley Club Privado Rioja 2017 Spain
On offer, this is a bit of a bargain - so grab some while it is £6.66 until 10th March and then it goes back up to over at £10, after which to be honest it is a bit punchy price wise. This is a lovely, juicy red wine that is easy drinking and with delicate notes of oak and spice but it is more fruit forward than oak driven. This is a relatively young, berries and chocolate, medium bodied wine without the complexity of Reserva wines for example but it is pretty and soft and at this price, worth buying.
