On the nose, there's a notable aroma of tropical fruits like pineapple, green apple, and peach, with a hint of white flowers. This wine is dry, fresh, and fruity with a medium body and balanced acidity. It has a crisp finish that lingers with a hint of minerality. 


About the producer: Dedicating the Gran Cerdo label (which translates to Big Pig in Spanish) to the bank executives who wouldn't give him a loan to start his wine business, Gonzalo Grijalba has developed a bit of a cult following. He's extremely passionate about reclaiming the biodiversity of the earth he farms, and has eschewed more commercial practices involving pesticides and herbicides for biodynamic methods.
