After three dry years, 2018 brought plenty of rain. The grapevines revived, and the result was an excellent vintage.
Made from organically certified vineyards, the grapes were separately harvested. Once in the cellar, they were cold-soaked and gently pressed.
Then only the free-run juice of this white wine from Penedès was fermented in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation was stopped when the wine had 6 grams of residual sugar per litre.
Drink this Gramona Gessamí 2018 from Penedès within the next 2-3 years.
The wine Gramona Gessamí has a pale wax colour with some greenish glints.
This expressive organic white wine exhibits deep floral nuances, particularly jasmine and orange blossom, combined with notes of citrus, underbush, peach compote and some mineral remembrances.
Fresh and creamy, this organic white wine by Gramona has a rewarding freshness and a lush texture. Delicious notes of white flowers, orange peel, peaches, apricots, aromatic herbs and green almonds. Long, fruity finish.
|Our personal opinion||
A gentle Penedès white wine, Gramona Gessamí 2018 pairs wonderfully with cheese and oily fishes.
