TASTING NOTES

A NICE BALANCE OF ACIDITY AND SWEETNESS, PACKED WITH FRUIT FLAVOURS & SLIGHTLY MINERAL. AN UNCOMPLICATED WINE - ONE THAT YOU CAN SERVE CHILLED WITH SOME TAPAS OR SMALL PLATES.

CURIOSITY

THE LABEL FEATURES A FAT PIG (GRAN CERDO IN SPANISH) AND IS A NOD TO THE DIFFICULTIES THAT OCCURRED DURING GONZALO’S FIRST YEAR OF PRODUCTION. NEEDING FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO COMPLETE THE HARVEST, GONZALO TURNED TO THE BANK. THE APPLICATION WAS DECLINED ON THE BASIS THAT WINE WAS NOT REGARDED AS SUITABLE SECURITY FOR THE LOAN, BECAUSE IT COULD NOT BE SEIZED IF REPAYMENTS WERE NOT MADE ON TIME. FORTUNATELY, FRIENDS STEPPED IN TO PROVIDE SUPPORT AND THE WINE WAS WELL RECEIVED.
