Details

This is the new vintage of Gramona Font Jui Xarel·lo, one of the three organic Spanish white wines produced by the renowned Celler Gramona winery, the other two being Ovum and Roent, also available at our website.

This Demeter certified Xarel·lo wine comes from an organically farmed estate called Mont Jui, belonging to the Penedés DO. This wine, like the other two, are also organic certified by the local authorities, namely the Catalan Council for Organic Agriculture (CCPAE).

Coming from more than 40-year-old vines grown on fresh, clay-limestone soils, the grapes of Gramona Font Jui Xarel·lo 2015 were picked by hand and carefully selected in the vineyard. Once in the cellar, they were stored at a low temperature and subsequently cold-macerated.

Gently crushed to extract the "free-run" juice, the wine was then transferred into 300-litre French oak barrels, used and new, where it was fermented and aged on its lees for a period of 3 months.

 

 

Additional Information

Appearance

The wine Gramona Xarel·lo Font Jui has a clean, bright, soft amber colour with steely tinges and a golden rim.

Nose

This organic white wine from Penedès displays 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.

Palate

Weightier than its two brothers, though not heavy, this white wine aged in oak by the Gramona winery features notes peach and pineapple, along with hints of toast and some touches of butter. Acidity is noticeable, but very well-balanced. Long finish, with notes of menthol, almonds and apricot.

Our personal opinion

The wine Gramona Font Jui Xarel·lo 2015 is bold and fresh. It will pair wonderfully with shrimp and fish dishes, and also with a cheese platter.
