Ramon Roqueta Barrel Selection, Spain

£9.95

1 x 750ml bottle

Averys' recommended red wine of the month. Rivalling many a young Rioja, Ramón Roqueta Tempranillo Barrel Selection is a smooth, fruity red with a hint of oak from six months in barrel. It’s from Pla de Bages, just north of Barcelona and in the foothills of the Pyrenees. It was crafted by Montpellier trained Juan Soler at a state of the art winery that sits alongside impressive 800-year-old buildings built by the Roqueta family’s ancestors. Key to the wine’s fragrance and rich fruit is the altitude of the vineyards and corresponding disparity between day and night temperatures. This ensures a longer growing period for the grapes and greater aroma and flavour.

Enjoy on its own, or with spicy Catalan style sausages, game or a meaty haricot bean casserole. Top choice for a barbecue
