Bargain Of The Week

Altos Rioja Crianza, Spain 2010 $14.60

There’s some amazing value in cheaper Spanish reds at present. This Rioja delivers more than simple grapejuice: it’s fairly straightforward but brightly flavoured with lots of blackberry jam and briary aromas leading into a soft, savoury palate with ample powdery tannins which are more about texture than grip. Now to five years. 13.5 per cent alcohol. 88/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: barbecued sausages
