Two Spanish treats from The Wine Society for a recovering invalid

 La Ina, Fino, Sherry

It is always reassuring to come back to a favourite and confirm that it is just as good as you remember. La Ina has long been one of my very favourite Finos – against stiff competition it has to be said. When we placed our recent order with The Wine Society we chose three Sherries – one of them La Ina. This fino has is very clean, precise, very well balanced with a touch of saltiness. Truly a real treat.

From an old favourite to a newby:

 3C Premium Selection – Cariñena 
from Cariñena

The 3C Premium Selection – Cariñena 2013 is full of soft and delicious black fruits without being cloying with some very gentle tannins. A wine to be enjoyed with food or by itself chatting with friends. A good choice from The Wine Society.
