Product Description
Details

The 2016 vintage of the exquisite Gramona Argent is a varietal Chardonnay.

This Corpinnat sparkling wine is produced from grapevines, 25 years old on average, sourced from Mas Escorpí, an organically and biodynamically farmed vineyard with calcareous and rocky soils located on the foothills of the Montserrat mountains, one of the coolest areas in the Penedès region.

Crafted by the Gramona winery, this Spanish sparkling wine was meticulously harvested and vinified. Once in the cellar, the grapes were gently crushed, after which only a 50% of the wine must was fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature.

After that, Gramona Argent 2016 completed secondary fermentation in the bottle, and was aged for a minimum of 44 months before its release.

Finally, this organic sparkling wine was added shipping liquor coming from an old family "solera."

Appearance

Clean and bright, Gramona Argent is deep straw with some steely tinges and greenish glints.

Nose

Full of elegance and finesse, this varietal Chardonnay suggests some aromas of citrus, butter, marzipan and white flowers, with hints of sugar coated fruit, dry fruit, and a note of wild berries.

Palate

Velvety-bodied, this Corpinnat sparkling wine from the Gramona winery has a enticing passage through the palate, with diminutive bubbles and a crisp, refreshing acidity. Notes of pomelo, orange rind, dry fruit, cream and nougat. Long, delicately bitter finish.

Our personal opinion

Expertly crafted and attractively packaged, Gramona Argent 2016 will add a touch of glamour to a gathering of friends.
