Gramona is the first growth of Cava. Better still, Gramona is the most recognisable producers of the breakaway appelation, Corpinnat. It might surprise one to read that these wines are good enough to rival the best in Champagne! It all starts in the vineyards, orgnaic and biodynamic principles are central to their work. Then in the cellar, the wines are made using the same methods as Champagne, often with longer ageing than the famous Champagne houses! These are serious sparkling wines that must be tried!
A traditional Cava blend of 60% Xarel-Lo, 30% Macabeu, 10% Parellada. Orgnanic and biodynamically farmed grapes follow the traditional method for sparkling wine (as in Champagne). The wine spends an incredible 40 months on the lees (in it’s bottle) before it is disgorged and readied for release. Fruity aromas of peach, apricot, bruised apple and lemon zest. The bouquet also displays notes of toasted almond, brioche and fennel. The palate is round with soft but persistent bubbles. Try swapping this out for Champagne as an aperitif or perhaps pair with grilled fish.
