Gran Cerdo

, 2009

Spain Red

Spain 75cl

A red from Spain without any region or vintage info! Great label with a flying pig!
The back label is even better, giving three alternative definitions of a pig (1. animal 2. untidy person, and 3. the winemaker's bank manager who refused to give him a loan!) although listed as a person with lack of manners or moral principle.
You really need to read the back label to enjoy the insult to the banks, very funny!
100% Tempranillo
De-classified Rioja, because he cropped at over the permitted 6 tonnes per hectare. From a 4.5 hectare vineyard, vines 35 years old certified biodynamic.
Bright red fruit Tempranillo on the nose, it's bright and juicy with lovely plummy fruit and a touch of oak. Soft juicy and very drinkable, preferably with pig!!
