Cosy reds for winter
As winter draws in, it’s the perfect time for bold, warming reds like this oak-aged Spanish rioja. Dinastía Manzanos have been making wine for 120 years but this is not a traditional rioja. Though it’s made from tempranillo, the archetypal rioja grape, it’s closer to Bordeaux in style with its dense dark fruit and spicy savoury oak. It’s full-bodied, rich and ripe flavours go well with roast beef or lamb. This wine is included in our reds case this month (there’s also a mixed case on offer) – turn to page 118 for details.
