Review: I wanted to get some Rioja as we were having friends round for a Spanish night. As I had never tried Rioja before I called and asked for advise. The lady I spoke to asked me for a price range and the sort of red wines we liked. When the wine arrived we were very pleased with her choice. Mid price from the range we gave, very nice fruity wine, not at all acidy and full bodied. I've just ordered a case and from the same winery the white for our next Spanish Tapas night. Thank you.
