Akemi Oaked Viura
Akemi Oaked Viura
(1)

Created especially for Spanish restauranteur Felix Jimenez, this Viura is the only wine he'll let customers eat with his sushi. 

It even smells like sake, with some floral notes as well. Subtly oaked, it's dry, rich and textured, balanced by the naturally bright tropical expressions of the Viura grape. Think grapefruit, tropical fruit, vanilla, and pepper.

Origin: Rioja, Spain
Vintage: 2017
Grape Varieties: Viura (aka Macabeo)
Food Pairings: Sushi, East Asian cuisines, white meat, creamy dishes
Bottle Size: 75cl
ABV: 12.5%

Gran Cerdo Blanco, Rioja
Gran Cerdo Blanco, Rioja

ORGANIC (UNCERTIFIED) / VEGAN

A silky white blend from Rioja, and an excellent value to boot. The majority is Viura, with around ten other varieties making up the remaining 20% (think Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, etc.). The result is a versatile white with lots of soft orchard fruit on the palate, like white apples and pears, with lovely texture and a dry, refreshing finish.

Dedicating the Gran Cerdo label (which translates to Big Pig in Spanish) to the bank executives who wouldn't give him a loan to start his wine business, Gonzalo Grijalba has developed a bit of a cult following. He's extremely passionate about reclaiming the biodiversity of the earth he farms, and has eschewed more commercial practices involving pesticides and herbicides for more biodynamic methods.

Grape variety: Viura (80%), other varieties (20%)
