Virgin Wines for Christmas - Rioja

A Rioja from Virgin Wines

With sweet, ripe fruit, Sapin's warm-climate Rioja is a great winter wine that matches well with roasts  - perfect for Christmas, then.

Finca Los Principes La Canada Rioja 2016 (£10.99) ripe, juicy red and black berry fruit with sweet vanilla, roast peppery spice and liquorice; fresh, juicy and supple with a firm, mineral core. Will improve with aeration or bottle aging. Very enjoyable.

Match with roast red meat, especially lamb with garlic and rosemary - or a Christmas roast with all the trimmings.
