WINE OF THE WEEK: Definition Viña Majestica Rioja Reserva 2009


£12.99, or £9.74 in any 6-bottle mix, Majestic


Everything a Rioja Reserva should be and an ideal red with which to greet the new year: full and velvety with sweet berry, coffee, spice and cedar flavours wrapped in oak, but not swamped by it. Background: it was made at La Rioja Alta's Torre de Oña winery in the Rioja Alavesa area where it spent 20 months in oak, 70% of it French, 40% of it new. More importantly, it's a match for almost any roast or grilled meat, duck or game birds, but especially good with roast or grilled lamb. It also goes appropriately well with Manchego, in addition to other hard cheeses.
