Lovely organic white, with crisp acid and clean fruit flavours. A really easy-going, crowd pleasing bottle.
Another smashing, great value wine from Gran Cerdo, produced from organic vineyards in the Rioja region. It’s a fresh and vibrant blend of Viura, the classic grape of white Rioja. and a smattering of other varieties. A minimal intervention white, with clean flavours, at a great price.

Gran Cerdo means ‘Big Pig’ in Spanish, a reference to banks who denied Gonzalo loans when attempting to start his company. This operation is a breath of fresh air in Rioja. Farming is organic and biodynamic, and winemaking strictly minimal interventionist with no oak used and wines made in a fresh and fruit forward style. Some of the best value wines out there.
