Six of the Best SPANISH WINES
Tesco Moscatel de Valencia nv
(£5.25) Giggle-makingly tasty dessert wine, great on its own or sloshed over fruit.
sainsbury’s Winemaker’s selection dry Manzanilla sherry nv
(£5.50) A brilliantly priced example of the quintessential Spanish aperitif: bone-dry, slightly salty manzanilla.
2016 Torres sangre de Toro
(£7.50, Waitrose) One of the best-value reds around, Spanish or otherwise. An absolute cracker.
2014 The society’s rioja crianza
(£7.75, Wine Society) Textbook rioja – soft, sweet and mellow – at a ridiculously modest price.
2017 ramón bilbao Verdejo
(£13.50, Great Western Wine) From Rueda, a crisp, fresh, creamy, citrusy white of great character.
2016 Valserrano rioja blanco
(£15, Private Cellar) You won’t find a better white rioja than this: deliciously herbal with a savoury finish.
