Gonzalo Gonzalo Grijalba firmly rejects market driven fashions, formulae, chemical treatments and conformism. Having a family background in winemaking, and seeing the effect agricultural chemicals had on his father, Gonzalo ploughs his own line.
80% white Rioja Grape Viura, the remaining is a blend of things like Grüner Veltliner, Macabeo and various others. However this is an uncomplicated wine that seems to sell itself. Aromas of cut grass, peaches and lemongrass. On the palate, dry with an acidity that leads to a short and refreshing fruit finish.
