Biodynamic – natural – minimal intervention – non-conformist

Gran Cerdo

Fiercely protective of the terroir of his family vineyards 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 oenological techniques and methods.

Ultimately, Gran Cerdo is all about the purest expression of fruit with whole bunch fermentation, no filtration, no stabilization and minimal sulphur. The wine has real character - all the juicy elements of Tempranillo but 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 soils of Gonzalo’s vineyards. 

The ‘Blanco’ is a blend dominated by 95% Viura, combined with a 5% field blend of grape varieties including Muscat, Tempranillo Blanco, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc & Verdejo. Fresh, with good acidity and exciting aromatics, this is most definitely a wine that possesses character and energy!

Utterly delicious and surprising.

We had ordered it with dinner out at a good pub recently. It was so good that I immediately sought it out. Very happy with it.
