Did I mention, that I am a lucky bastard? Constantly I am invited to excellent meals and – more importantly – brilliant drinks. Don’t ask me why, those people must be mistaken me with someone friendly, important, interesting, or something.
Anyway, on one of those recent occasions I was treated to yet another outstanding wine.
And this is the vineyard, Rioja Vega.
This is a wonderful wine for warmer days, although it has 13.5%. Yes, quite a strong wine. But is has a very nice fruity taste, making it ideal for a warm summer evening among friends, with or after a delicious meal. On second thought, this wine would be equally nice during winter, in front of a fireplace, with or without friends.
Just try and enjoy it.
