What does this wine taste like?
Drinking and storing
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!
I medium bodied fruity red that delivers. Lovely cherry and currant notes. Great value. Drink alone or with friends (have another bottle ready!).
Great red with attitude
Love this as an every day go-to red. It has just the right amount of depth and is a great price
A great easy drinking non ocassion wine
I love this as an anytime wine, great taste at an affordable price.
Lovely smooth drinkable red wine at a great price!
