Six of the Best SPAN­ISH WINES

The Field - - Country Estate -

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.
