Gran Cerdo Blanco

Blanco Rioja, in the modern style. 

The exquisitely named Gonzalo Gonzalo makes his wines under The Wine Love label from the family winery in Rioja. The majority (95%) is Viura, the mainstay of white Rioja, from vines planted by his father 40 years ago, giving the wine a bright green apple character, and a 5% hodgepodge of myriad other varieties. The vines are organic, but not certified, mostly as Mr Gonzalo is not a fan of bureaucracy. His attitude to life is best expressed by the wine's back label, referring to the bankers who refused to give him a loan on the basis that wine could not be seized in the event of default: “One day, these greasy and sweaty corporate suits will find that the best things in life cannot be impounded. Thanks to our friends help, we were finally able to bottle this wine.”
