If you're fond of silky reds with lots of easy berry character, then Val Conde Crianza is a 'must have'. Like a young Rioja in style. Pure Tempranillo, the prized grape of Rioja, it is brimful with juicy plums, redcurrant and black cherries, made by the super talented Rivero family. Enjoy alongside tapas, garlic mushrooms, roasted vegetables with feta, or chicken. It's great as a glass on its own, too.
