    The Aldonia Vendimia Rioja is bright, fruit-driven, and medium-bodied, with soft tannins, and has what we like to call ultimate chuggability. It's also a delicious price. Enjoy your first glasses with robust tapas like albondigas - meatballs. For an entree, we recommend a lamb shawarma (wrap)with garlicky tahini sauce, ripe tomatoes, onions, lettuce and hot sauce if you're so inclined. The Vendemia is particularly suited to lamb dishes, so use your imagination. Spaghetti bolognaise is another great choice. Or, grilled Merguez sausages with roasted potatoes on the side. A room temperature Spanish Manchego cheese is the perfect final course; serve it with dried apricots and cherries, and some toasted walnuts. ¬°Salud winelovers!

    Winery:  "Cherry red in the glass with a violet rim, clean and bright. Very fruity. On the nose, crystallised red fruit (strawberries and cranberries). Light floral hints of violets and underbrush. Notes of liquorice, blood orange and peach on a light backdrop of chocolate and vanilla. The palate is fresh, juicy and structured. Balanced and easy to drink. Drink now or keep until 2020. Pair with pasta, rice, vegetables, mild cheeses or ham, among others. Ideal with daily meals."

    Trade Notes: "A young Rioja already behaving like a big boy, sturdy with a good attaque, racy, with lots of fresh spicy fruit; harmonious, long, persistent finish."
