Sunday lunch

Lindes de Remelluri, Labastida, Rioja 2010

The first of three exciting Spanish reds is a very modern Rioja, full of really clean, pure black fruit flavours, beautifully rounded and fresh and designed to showcase the vines from the village of Labastida. Will get even better with age, but happily drinkable now with all red meats, particularly roast pork or lamb. £15.75, dbmwines.co.uk

Midweek meals

Momo Vendima Seleccionada Ribera Del Duero 2010

The second wine of Bodegas Bohorquez, a small, bespoke producer in Spain's second biggest wine region, which specialises in coaxing great wine from Tempranillo grapes planted on tiny plots of barren soil. Medium bodied, lightly oaked, wonderfully succulent. A gorgeous accompaniment for a midweek steak or baked pasta. £9.95, thewinesociety.com

Bargain basement

Heredad del Rey Reservada Yecla 2012

The reds of Yecla in the south-east of Spain are often dark, rich and heavy, but this blend of Monastrell and Syrah takes a slightly lighter tone: smooth but intense, with black cherry and mocha flavours and a whiff of cinammon. Stock up for summer. £5.99 (18 June to 15 July, normally £8.99), Waitrose
