Down in Spain, the kind of whites to drink in cooler weather are going to be from Rioja, where oak ageing is something of a tradition. Barrel fermenting gives added heft to the already creamy viura grape in wines such as the softly elegant Cune Barrel Fermented Rioja Blanco 2017.
Classy yet restrained floral, vanilla pod-scented white rioja (just four months in cask) is a winter must-buy.
