CVNE Rioja Rosado 2007 – Spanish Winner

By | July 1, 2008

Spain finally threw off their ‘perennial underachiever’ tag and won Euro 2008. We settled down to the final with a bottle of rose – the Germans play in white, the Spanish in red, it seemed like a reasonable compromise, or at least it might have been if it wasn’t from Rioja. Like most of Europe I wanted Spain to win. They play nicer football and frankly, it was their turn!
A truth I hold to be self evident is that all Rioja is good, particularly CUNE, regardless of colour. Their 2007 Rosado doesn’t disappoint. It’s a beautiful shade of pink and it tastes of raspberries and strawberries with a zip of lemon and just a hint of grassiness. It’s a whole summer picnic in a glass!
Majestic currently offer £2 off if you buy two bottles making it a £5.50 bargain. Stock up now and enjoy your summer.
