Gran Cerdo Tempranillo is all about the purest expression of fruit with whole bunch fermentation, no filtration, no stabilization and minimal sulphur. The winemaker, Gonzalo Gonzalo Grijalba is a legend (and not just for his name) because he has proved that you can make a fantastic Rioja, following Organic & Biodynamic practices, at an affordable price. The wine has real character, all the juicy elements of Tempranillo, with no dirty oak to mask its charm. It has a natural way about it but with no funkiness. With its cherry-red, purplish, brilliant colour Gran Cerdo reveals primary notes of fresh fruit, strawberries, raspberries, cherries and violets with clean mineral tones from the granite. This little natural wine is phenomenal value.
In the Gran Cerdo Tempranillo Gonzalo Grijalba has prodcued a wine that shows, in the nose and flavours, an intoxicating combination of red and dark berries, faint lavender (or violets) and a slightly earthy edge. The herbacious flavours gives the wine a slight green finish with a little spice, while the tannin and acidity cry out for some red meat.
The back label... Gran Cerdo is a great wine dedicated to the bank executives that denied loans to us on the basis that wine is not a seizable asset. 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. Now you can enjoy it with pasta or ham.
