Sweet devine I missed this review. Better get my skates on. I've tasted the red before but not the white. Will give it a shot.

Had the rioja with a roast lamb dinner on Wednesday and it was lovely. Haven't had a rioja in a while so wasn't sure how it would be. It worked really well with the food - not sure how it would be on it's own, but if it stays reduced, I might give it a go some evening and see :biggrin:

I'm having a glass of the Rioja while the dinner is in the oven (me nerves are wrecked after having to cook!). It's really lovely actually. Have the white ear marked for tomorrow as we are having chicken. I'm very dedicated me. :biggrin:

Had some of the Rioja last night. Have been drinking more Temperanillo than Rioja in recent times and I'd forgotten how nice and oaky Rioja is. Very pleasant and really easy to drink - went down a bit too easy for a school night. ;) Would deffo buy this again as an everyday drinker. Thumbs up from DH too. :thumbsup:

Totally forgot to review!

I liked the Castillo de San Lorenza, very light and easy to drink. I like a more robust wine with food but this was lovely as a Friday night tipple while catching up on my Sky+.

Just having a glass of the white now, not too impressed, it's not as sharp as some chardonnay and not as 'oakey' which is good but it lacks any major impact.
