Pale yellow with golden highlights. Good intensity on the nose, with ripe white fruit such as apple and peach, coupled with Aniseed notes and fennel. Nice balance between notes of freshly baked bread and subtle citrus peel aromas. Also, there are hints of dried nuts, subtle toast and yeast notes with buttery aromas. On the palate, the wine is wide on entry, full and creamy with a refreshing finish. Velvet like bubbles. The white flowers and fruit aromas come through again on the palate against a backdrop of freshly baked bread. A cava with structure, which shows personality and finesse year after year. The Gramona Imperial is particularly versatile and can be enjoyed throughout the meal, from the ‘aperitif’ through to the ‘digestif’
Gramona are acknowledged, in Spain and beyond, to be the finest of all Cava Houses (voted 26th in the World’s Most Admired Wine Brands by Drinks International 2016). Located in the Alt Penedes region, 30km south of Barcelona, it is the perfect location to produce Cavas.
Gramona has formed an alliance with a unique grape variety: the Xarel-lo, the backbone of their cavas. The fifth generation of Gramona has also started making still wines and sweet wines which aim to express the character of their local terroir and delight lovers of good wine. True to their belief in respecting the environment, they manage their vineyards according to organic and biodynamic principles.
