It shows a straw color, clean and bright, with golden reflections. It offers intense and expressive aromas. We find ripe stone fruit and white fruit, as well as Mediterranean herbs such as rosemary and thyme. The aging notes are very evident, with hints of dried fruit, toasted bread crust, coffee and spices, wilted flowers and hints of undergrowth. The entry on the palate is powerful, with great structure. The very fine bubbles melt into the wine and provide a velvety texture. It has great freshness and verticality, with a finish full of mineral sensations. It is a fully gastronomic wine. Thanks to the balance between structure, creaminess and freshness, it goes well with an infinity of raw materials and elaborations, among which we highlight Iberian ham, foie, cold meats, seafood, rice dishes and spoon dishes, such as marmitako. To enhance the quality of this wine, we suggest serving it between 8 °C and 10 °C and drinking it in a wide glass to favor oxygenation and expressiveness. Gramona Lustros can be drunk now or, kept in the right conditions, it can follow a magnificent evolution to be enjoyed in the future.
