Gran Cerdo Blanco 2019
Lovely organic white, with crisp acid and clean fruit flavours.
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.
