Surprising hue which is virtually straw coloured with onion skin highlights. The nose has an unusual aromatic profile, ranging from subtlety to complexity. Pronounced floral spectrum (poppies, fresh red roses), red fruits (wild strawberries, blueberries, red currants) and smooth ageing notes (egg flans, butter and puff pastries). A constant touch of chalk in the background. On the palate, it is very fresh on entry, gaining in body and fine vertical fruit structure over the palate. Very smooth, crisp carbon dioxide, which blends with a lively, sustained acidity.
The cava pairs brilliantly with all kinds of appetizers, and blends very well with Asian cuisine. It can be enjoyed with the most exquisite dishes and is an ideal accompaniment throughout an entire ‘tasting menu’
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.
