Gran Familia Rioja (Episode 223)

In this video, we taste a Rioja kindly donated to us by Anna.

This particular Rioja is a Gran Familia Rioja (more details can be found at https://www.guyandersonwines.co.uk/wines/gran-familia/ ). This is a great introduction to Rioja if you are not onto too heavy tasting style wines.

This Rioja is very light for a Rioja and not as full-bodied as you might expect from a Rioja.

It is very refreshing and might even take a chill.

 

This wine is available from the Co-Op in the UK.

Sainsburys House Torla Rioja Wine – (Episode 221 Part 4)

In the 4th part of this episode where we check out wines available in the supermarket for under £6.50, we try out this House Rioja from Sainsbury’s.

The colour was a deep purple and on the nose, cheery was the predominant aroma.

However, John M felt that there was a vinegar tinge to the small – not a good start!

On the palette the cherry flavour hits you and then the tannins kick in and then the taste is gone.

So a good honest simple table wine and at £5.00 one can not complain.

John L described it as a good country wine.
