Germán Blanco's Lively Wines typify the idea that you do not need to dropkick a tonne of oak up the arse of a wine to achieve complexity. Using old winemaking techniques, such as foot trodding the grapes, but modern ageing vessels such as amphoraehe creates wines off stunning purity and tension. All the wines are organic. Old world authenticity meets modern pragmatism. He makes wines in Rioja, Bierzo & Ribera del Duero and is Spain's rising star.

La Bicicleta is an ultra-clean, ultra-modern Rioja, led with Tempranillo but in the old school method; includes some white varieties. Quinta Milu Ribera del Duero is made from Tinta Pais and unmistakably Ribera del Duero but without a reliance on oak and extraction. Quinta Milu La Cometa is an absolute dynamic offering from their best plots. From Bierzo; Casa Aurora La Nave is the ultimate introduction to Mencia, Casa Aurora Clos Pepin is an ultra-traditional field blend of many varieties which is deep, moreish and delcious. Casa Aurora La Vendanona is essentially a doorway to the past, from the anciently shaped bottle, to the wine making to the philopsphy, unfined, unfiltered, utterly authentic and delicious - and only 600 bottles made.
