I’ve just got back from a long weekend in La Rioja that I’d tacked on to the end of a work trip. Not a lot of formal tasting, I did catch up with Scott Wasley from the Spanish Acquisition for a big session at Roda and visited a few of my favorite small producers.
It’s been a while since I’ve seen this wine around, which is a shame as it’s a very good rendition of Albarino. Plus I’m a sucker for a kitsch label. It is also quite a bit cheaper now. Given the heat wave we’re having in Melbourne at the moment, this was perfect with a bacon, leek and zucchini frittata. The importer is The Wine Company.
