M & S Rioja

‘This is not just red wine; this is M & S Marqués del Romeral Reserva Rioja 2005’

They sure know how to get their television adverts and culinary treats right, but until recently, when my friend bought me this sumptuous bottle of rioja for my birthday, I had not really considered purchasing wine on a regular basis from Marks and Spencer (mostly because they can be a little pricey)…

I think its safe to say that I will be frequenting their stores a lot more having tried this Spanish delight alongside a simple potato and leek soup, followed by some brie and crusty white bread. Rich and dark in colour with deep, cherry flavours and a dry yet smooth finish, this oaky red is everything that a rioja should be!

With a broad selection of wines from around the world, all specially chosen for M & S, I’ll definitely be opting for their dine in for £10 deal more often, mostly so I can have a taste of the wines they offer alongside some of their very yummy dishes!
