TOP TIPPLE: Muriel Reserva Rioja (The Co-Op, £4.99 – down from £9.99)

Have your say

Bodegas Muriel is located in Elciego in La Rioja, and this Reserva was made by winemaker Julián Murúa.

This 100% Tempranillo grape variety is a delight.

Elegant, smooth with a hint of pepper and spice and a good, lightly-oaked finish.

The Co-op has some terrific wine deals throughout the year and although the current batch comes to an end soon it’s always worth a look for their bargains.

At £9.99 you would just about be getting your money’s worth.

At £4.99 it’s theft.
