Gran Cerdo Tempranillo, Gonzalo Gonzalo (Biodynamic/Natural)
Spain, Rioja, 2015
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, with all the juicy elements of Tempranillo, and no unnecessary oak to mask its charm. It has a natural, earthy 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.
