Velvety smooth
Fruity, full and rich
It cascades down my throat
Having passed my lips

Slowly but surely
It’s warmth permeates
I feel myself unwind
Savouring the taste

Cheeks all aglow
As I settle down
The perfect way
To soothe a furrowed brow

It’s colour deep and regal
It insulates on chilly nights
Snuggled up in bed with
A glass by my side

Sipping it so carefully
Savouring every drop
The divine taste of Rioja
Is something that I love.
