wine of the week

2011 Navarro López ‘Pergolas’ Old Vines, Tempranillo, Valdepeñas DO, Spain

pergolas 2

We’re trying hard to stick to that strict post-holiday budget without compromising on great taste.  Spain lends a helping hand with plenty of affordable yet appealing wines. This week, Tempranillo from the arid plains of Valdepeñas also offers warmth and comfort on the chilly winter evenings. Ripe raspberry and strawberry flavours are given extra intrigue by a slight earthiness along with notes of clove, orange and vanilla. Soft and juicy with a subtle firmness, this solid Spanish number is a welcome dinner guest anytime. But speaking of chilly, Navarro López’ Pergolas would be the perfect foil for a steaming bowl of vegetarian Chili. How’s that for economizing? – MM

$12.99 (SKU #616011) Available at BC Liquor Stores.
