Rayos Uva 2013, Rioja – 13% – €17
Made by Frenchman Olivier Rivière, who features in my blog this week, this is a delicious pure Rioja, without any of the cheap oak flavours associated with so many of the less expensive wines from this region. Fabulous fragrant fresh red fruits with a real elegance and light tannins. Try it with roast lamb over Easter or with any white meats.
