If Spain is more to your taste, we got two real crackers for you. Izadi Reserva is classic Rioja, with red berry fruit, toasty oak and vanilla and tobacco spice in one deliciously smooth mouthful. Zarate are our favourite producers of Albarino. Their style is drier and more mineral that most, with a tangy, almost saline finish, and all the better for it.
