Corpinnat Gramona Imperial 2016
Availability: In stock
This is the new vintage of Gramona Imperial, the entry-level Spanish sparkling wine of the Gramona winery, which consistently delivers quality and affordability.
Selected on site and in the cellar, the grapes of this Corpinnat sparkling wine from Penedès were gently pressed and separately vinified according to the variety.
Then they were blended and bottled. Finally, Gramona Imperial 2016 was aged for 60 months and added shipping liquor after its disgorging.
This is a very versatile Corpinnat sparkling wine.
The sparkling wine Gramona Imperial Brut is deep straw with some golden tinges.
Ripe white fruit, nuanced by hints of citrus, flowers and aromatic herbs. As this blend of Macabeo, Xarel·lo, Parellada and Chardonnay aerates, it evolves into pastry, dry fruit, aniseed and citrus. Elegantly mineral background with a floral note.
Palate-coating, fresh and creamy, this sparkling wine from Gramona conveys flavours of custard cream, citrus, aromatic herbs and ripe white fruit. Smooth mousse, lively acidity and a long finish, mixing some floral and toasted remembrances.
