The days are still warm, but as the nights turn cooler, we move on to more substantial wines.
López de Haro Blanco 2015 (£8.99 Hennings) a modern take on an old-school white Rioja; golden sandy colour with old-oak nose and ripe orchard fruits, long and fresh.
A versatile food wine. Good; very good value.
Rosa dei Masi della Venezie 2015 (£11.95, winedirect.co.uk) crisp, fresh red berries with a shake of white pepper; fresh, mineral and linear. Very adept.
Drink as an aperitif, with picnic food or goat's cheese and sun-dried tomato risotto.
Bodegas Pascual Buró 2012 (£14.50, swig.co.uk) a big-yet-fresh and refined wine with oaky spice with dark berry and black cherry fruit; fine tannins.
Match with roasted red meat.
