Availability: In stock
This is the new vintage of Gramona Font Jui Xarel·lo from Celler Gramona.
A varietal Xarel·lo wine, the grapes are sourced from a single vineyard with clay-limestone soils, called Font Jui, situated in DO Penedés. The organic and Demeter certified vines are around 40 years old.
The grapes were picked by hand and carefully selected on site. Then they were cold macerated before being gently crushed to extract the "free-run" juice. After that, this Spanish white wine was fermented in 300-litre French oak barrels, used and new.
Then Gramona Font Jui Xarel·lo 2019 was aged on its lees for three months.
Pair this white wine from Penedès with white meat recipes, rice dishes and creamy cheeses.
Production slightly above 5,000 bottles.
The wine Gramona Xarel·lo Font Jui is deep straw with steely tinges and a golden rim.
Aromas of apricot, peach and pineapple over a background made of herbs, green almonds and some salty notes, quite typical of Xarel·lo variety. The brief ageing period in oak barrels shows in some hints of toast and caramel.
