The Sunday Express

Published:  23 July, 2008

A warm Harpers welcome to JAMIE GOODE, who opens his Sunday Express account with his favourite wines to drink with tapas. 'Most Spanish wines used to be cheap and nasty, but now they're cheap and nice,' he says. He opts for 2003 Palacio de Bornos Verdejo (5.99; Waitrose), which has 'an appealing, rich, grassy/herb nose, leading to a rich, rounded palate with lovely fruit and a deliciously savoury finish'; 2003 Muruve Roble (5.99; Sainsbury's) has a 'vivid red colour with warm, sweet, spicy fruit and hints of vanilla and tar'; while Hidalgo Manzanilla La Gitana (5.99; Majestic, Waitrose) 'matches brilliantly with tapas', with its 'fresh, slightly salty, nutty character'.
