Corpinnat Gramona III Lustros Brut Nature 2013
Availability: In stock
The varieties are grown in the Font Jui vineyard, the Xarel·lo in a 4-hectare plot with clayey soils, and the Macabeo in a 1 hectare plot with sandy soils.
Both are organically farmed, and the winery is increasingly applying biodynamic techniques to enhance the vitality of the grapevines.
Produced by Gramona, this Spanish sparkling wine was traditionally vinified following the Champenoise method. First, the grapes were separately fermented in stainles steel tanks.
Then this Brut Nature was bottled and aged for 70 months in the cellar.
Finally, this Corpinnat sparkling wine was manually disgorged. No sugar was added to the wine after the process. Natural sugar content amounts to 3 grams per litre.
The sparkling wine Gramona III Lustros Gran Reserva has a pale yellow colour with some golden tinges.
Supremely elegant, this blend of Xarel·lo and Macabeo smells of dry fruit and toast, with some delightful nuances of quince, lime and laurel, alongside some remembrances of Mediterranean underbrush and flowers over a mineral background.
Structured, lively and wonderfully textured, this wine of the Gramona winery has some small, tingling bubbles and a first-class acidity. Suggestions of citrus, fennel, quince, cypress and bouquet garni. Long finish with some mineral remembrances. This Corpinnat sparkling wine shows real complexity.
