Once harvested, the grapes pass over the sorting table to undergo a second screening for the very best fruit. Afterwards, both pre-fermentation maceration and fermentation take place in a 3,000-litre foudre. During the vinification process, traditional, non-aggressive punch-downs are performed over a two-week period to preserve the silkiness of the tannins. Once fermentation has finished, only the free-run juice is utilised, which then fills 300-litre French Allier oak barrels (fine grain, medium toast), where malolactic fermentation occurs spontaneously. Subsequent ageing on the lees takes place until the beginning of spring. The wine spends a total of eight months in 33% new barrels and is then bottled, where it completes its refinement process.
Serve at 12-14 °C with salmon, tuna, white meat.
Gramona’s history is long and storied and the property has been a quality reference point in the zone for decades. As far back as 1816 a member of the family has been making wine in the Penedes. 1921 marks the year when the Gramona name began to be put on bottles of "Cava Champagne". Today, the house is one of the few remaining family-owned estates in the region, with many having been bought by large companies. Gramona is located in the Penedes region of Spain just 45 minutes from Barcelona along Spain's Mediterranean coast. The Climate in the Penedes is mild and warm, benefiting mostly from a Mediterranean influence. However, as the differences in elevation are quite dramatic (with some vines at over 700 meters), there are many microclimates in the zone. Soil in the region is not particularly rich in organic material (as is often the case in great winemaking regions) with high levels of sand and clay. Gramona is, unfortunately, one of the last remaining family-owned cava houses of the Penedes. Here, elderly ladies from the village carefully wrap each bottle before being packed for transport and the entire operation is carried out by people who love the family and the estate. For the property, their reference points are in Champagne in France, and they regularly taste wines from this area next to their own (with often astonishing results). However, pricing remains very low compared to even the most mundane, negociant Champagnes on the market. These are some of the best values in our portfolio.All products by this producer
