Rioja Vega Tempranillo, Rioja 2016
Bodegas Rioja Vega take super, ripe, red grapes from the Rioja Alta, blend in some from the Rioja Baja and make a pure, fruity, vibrant young Joven wine just from the Tempranillo variety. It’s found all over Spain but seems to do brilliantly in Rioja where the balance and flavour work so well. There’s depth of flavour too, all very fruity with plum and blueberry notes – but this is un-oaked Spanish red wine so you get a very pure flavour. Try it with ham or a mild hard cheese, although it will stand up to most meaty dishes.
