Great value Tempranillo full of juicy berry fruit from central Spain’s cru Valdepeñas. Not only that, it’s bottled in a handy 50cl. Old vines, hand harvesting, gentle oak all add up to this tasty red from the ‘Best Winery of Spain’ in 2014 and 2015.
"Exciting launch of a new, great value red in handy 50cl size. Rioja lovers take not especially"
Beth Willard Buyer for Spain
With hot dry summers and very cold winters, Valdepeñas in central Spain has been renowned for its excellent quality reds for centuries. This family cellar, Félix Solís, has been established there since 1952, and has twice won ‘Best Producer of Spain’. This is a new release red using old-vine grapes, all hand picked for maximum quality with a lengthy maceration of juice with skins to ensure depth of flavour. Three months’ ageing in American oak barrels lends a gentle hint of toasty vanilla to silky berry fruit. A great value red, and when bottled in extremely handy 50cl size it’s even more irresistible. A perfect size when half a bottle just won’t do! Silky enough to enjoy solo, or serve with pork and chicken dishes, moussaka or rice pilaf.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
