Biodynamic – natural – minimal intervention – non-conformist
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 ‘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!
