We find it difficult sustaining a polite smile when someone tells us that they don't like oak-aged white wines. You'll find us sporting the same horrified rictus when listening to unpalatable political opinions. It's such a broad generalisation that it excludes so many wonderful wines, like white Burgundy, premium Chablis, white Rioja, white Bordeaux and some of the world's finest Chardonnays.

There's no mistaking the influence of new oak on this white Rioja, it's there in the tangy, wild garlic leaf aromas and the woody bite on the palate, but it works so well with the lemon and grapefruit flavours that it enhances the wine like a good seasoning. Match it with rich food, it can take it, because it has bright citrus acidity and a lot of sassy fruit. 12.5% alc. Drink now-2018
