Grape - Viura/Godello
Where - Rioja, Spain
What - The Gran Cerdo is satirically named after the fat cat bankers who continue to deny winemakers bank loans because the returns aren’t deemed high enough. This wine celebrates alternative methods of starting up an enterprise and alternative forms of funding. This is a Viura blend from the outer reaches of the Rioja area. Organic fruit is hand harvested and fermented in steel using wild yeasts. The whole lot is bottled without fining, filtration or much sulphite at all.
This sings of the Viura grape. Notes of peach, pears, zest and herb are in abundance. It's a zingy organic wine that offers a great introduction to the exciting world of natural wine.
Zingy, fruity, rounded. Vegan. Organic. Low intervention. 11.5% ABV.
