Gran Cerdo Blanco is our kind of mid-week wine. Made by one of our favourite winemakers, it's 80% Viura - the white grape variety of Rioja - and 20% of a co-planting of aromatic grape varieties that winemaker Gonzalo Gonzalo planted around 3 years ago. The result is a fresh, light wine with some aromatic backbone. Lemons are pitted against peaches and white flowers. 

 

Gonzalo has a cult following for his rebellious winemaking. Translating as 'fat pig', the wine is named for the bankers who refused to loan him money for his vineyard and rails against them in the label blurb.

 

The anti-establishment sentiment doesn't stop there: despite being in Rioja and using many biodynamic practices, it's certified as neither. Instead, Gonzalo works his 4.5 hectare plot with his own hands and his own rules, eschewing sulfur and chemical intervention to create a fun, natural wine.
