Gramona La Cuvee Brut Corpinnat 2016
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.
The grapes are picked by hand, go onto a sorting belt, are transferred by gravity, and pressed whole bunch. This sparkling wine is aged for more than 30 months.
Yellow color, with steel edges verging on white gold. Medium intensity on the nose. Elegant floral notes wrapped in stone fruit – peach, apricot -, golden apple, lemon peel, closed by a shy note of raw almond. On the palate, round entrance, medium enveloping body, crispy carbonic texture. Very refreshing and long finish.
Perfect as an appetizer that can be extended to the rest of the meal. Gastronomic and versatile.
