TASTING NOTE The wine has real character, all the juicy elements of Tempranillo, with no oak to mask its charm. It has a natural way about it but with no funkiness. Cherry-red, purplish, brilliant colour with primary notes of fresh fruit, strawberries, raspberries, cherries and violets with clean mineral tones from the granite, this little natural wine is phenomenal value
GRAPE/BLEND 100% Tempranillo
FOOD PAIRING Roasted chicken, slow cooked roast shoulder of lamb with thyme or a salad of Canteloupe melo
VITICULTURE Gonzalo rejects market driven fashions, formulae, chemical treatments and conformism. Instead, he has sought out his own methods with respect for the land, his vineyards, and the traditions of his forefathers. He balances this respect with formal training in the latest enological techniques and methods. They also follow the lunar cycle in vineyard and the winery. In the end Gran Cerdo is all about the purest expression of fruit with whole bunch fermentation, no filtration, no stabilization and minimal Sulphur.
