Product guide note

Rioja has to be Spain’s most famous wine, named after an area in the north of the country. The red wines are mostly made from a grape called Tempranillo (pronounced tem-pra-nee-yow). The word “Crianza” on the label indicates that it has some ageing in both barrel and in the bottle. The principle flavours are red cherries and spicy oakiness.
