Gran Cerdo Tempranillo Gonzalo Grijalba, best value natural red on the market! Gran Cerdo is all about great natural wine with whole bunch fermentation, light filtration, no stabilisation and minimal sulphur. Viticulture is organic (although not certified). The juicy elements of Tempranillo shine through with no dirty oak to mask the charm of this little natural wine giving phenomenal value. The winemaker, Gonzalo Gonzalo is a legend (and not just for his name) because he has proved that you can make a fantastic natural Tempranillo at an affordable price. The nose and flavours are an intoxicating combination of red and dark berries, faint lavender (or violets) and a slightly earthy edge. The herbaceous flavours gives the wine a slight green finish with a little spice, while the tannin and acidity cry out for some red meat.

The back label......

Gran Cerdo is a great wine dedicated to the bank executives that denied loans to us on the basis that wine is not a seizable asset. One day, these greasy and sweaty corporate suits will find that the best things in life cannot be impounded. Thanks to our friends help, we were finally able to bottle this wine. Now you can enjoy it with pasta or ham.

Gonzalo Gonzalo Grijalba was born in Logroño, Spain and grew up among the vineyards that his parents cultivated in Fuenmayor. After several years of training in various parts of the wine-making world, he returned to start his own project. 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 enological techniques and methods. His father's illness from years of working with chemical herbicides and pesticides was a major influence in his decision making. The soil itself suffered as well, losing its vitality as well as its ecosystem. Gonzalo has worked hard to restore the vitality of the vineyards, and has revived natural treatments and biodynamic practices to maintain healthy vineyards.


18Reviews For Gran Cerdo Tempranillo Gonzalo Grijalba 2018

  1. How good is this wine?


    Well priced organic red wine - good for drinking with a variety of food

  2. How good is this wine?


    Now on our fifth case! Drank it first at Inver and become hooked. A pleasant wine with lots of flavour but not too heavy. Goes well with a range of foods. Very easy drinking!

  3. How good is this wine?


    This really opens up on decanting, having started out with the fruit core kind of missing and feeling a little tart. Once decanted it was, as other reviewers say, a deep-fruited, medium bodied beauty - and it has enough acidity and savoury black-olive interest to handle things like tomato-based ragu really well (I literally tested that pairing).

  4. How good is this wine?


    Now on our fifth case! Our standard dinner wine - good flavour, easy drinking!

  5. How good is this wine?


    Fantastic tasting and a natural wine, what’s not to love

  6. How good is this wine?


    Drank this first at the wonderful restaurant Inver in Argyll. We are now on our third dozen. A light and clean but complex tasting wine that goes well with many foods, Improves after opening and seems to have less after effects than some red wines. Will probably order a fourth dozen!

  7. How good is this wine?


    I bought a mixed case low/no sulphur wines and this was the first one tried. An excellent introduction. Flavour and character, purity and some structure. Good value.

  8. How good is this wine?


    Really enjoyed this one, a little fizzy at the start, balanced, good stuff

  9. How good is this wine?


    I was served this red in a restaurant in London and was delighted to find the supplier online.
    Great with food or on its own, I am a big fan of natural wines these days and this is one of my favourites.
    On my second purchase of 12 bottles at this point.


  10. How good is this wine?


    First tasted this wine at a restaurant. We are now on our second dozen. It is very easy to drink with a character of its own. It goes well with a range of food - it is fairly light and has no unpleasant aftertaste. Excellent value!

    Easy drinking wine. Low sulphur wines can lack consistency but this never fails to satisfy.

  12. How good is this wine?


    As my title suggests, this wine was quite a surprise; from my little experience in the natural wine market, I find many natural wines lack some oomph. Maybe it's just my getting used to the uncluttered, unadulterated, simpler tastes of such wines. This wine, however, just blew me away. It was full of flavour, robust enough to hold its own against a 3-cereal potage with crispy butternut. Yet it was not too aggressive, as some conventional Spanish reds can be. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it.

  13. How good is this wine?


    Hard for me to find a good red to suit my taste but this is soft and great to drink by itself or with food. Will deffinately buy again.

  14. How good is this wine?


    This wine ticked all the boxes for me: vegan biodynamic low sulphur....maybe because of all those features it tastes like I imagine wine should taste(!) - I don't speak the language of wine experts but in my own words it's soft, deep, delicious, and no headache :-). Can't wait to try the others in the box.

    Bought this on staff recommendation. Great value and loved the little story on the label. Well done Buon Vino.

    Josh Bulpin08/09/2016

    Its delicious straight after opening, a little fizzy and bright. Then quite quickly it mellows and gets deeper and easier. I liked it. A lot.

    Joanne P26/08/2016

    I like Spanish wine but would never class myself as an expert. Bought a bottle in my way to my holiday destination in the Lake District. Such an excellent find. Soft to taste, enjoyable with a variety of meals, and kept well, considers I am a slow drinker. Definitely buying again via mail order.
