What does this wine taste like?
Drinking and storing
I medium bodied fruity red that delivers. Lovely cherry and currant notes. Great value. Drink alone or with friends (have another bottle ready!).
I first tasted this wine in a Manchester restaurant that was financed via crowd-funding (you can work out which one yourself). The connection between the problems experienced by the restaurant owner and the Spanish winemaker in being able to borrow money to support their ventures was similar. Whilst crowd-funding was the answer in the UK, I believe it was slightly more problematic in Spain. Anyway, the wine eventually got produced, and the label explains the producer's feelings for bankers. Gran Cerdo = Big Pig. There's a symmetry there, and the wine is absolutely marvellous. Recommended!
Gran Cerdo is, as usual, a very safe bet. My impression is that it varies quite a lot from a vintage to another. Last vintage i had was slightly wilder. It is still a very interesting bottle of wine: generous fruit, not the usual woody and sweet decadence that ruins too many Spanish wines. This one sticks to the dryer side. Good balance, not that long. No great subtlety nor complexity. But still a very interesting wine. Totally recommended.
We had this delicious wine in our local pub and loved it's full berry flavours. Great service from Vinissimus means we can get it in batches from Barcelona at a very reasonable price. excellent delivery system by the way - you can track every stage of the journey.
Delicious wine and excellent value
I had this wine in a Michelin starred restaurant and thought it delicious. Bright acidity, very clean flavours and a long finish. I was happy with the wine at the inflated restaurant price. But at the price it is offered on Vinissimus it is a steal.
