The wine Gramona Mas Escorpí is a single varietal Chardonnay made from grapes coming from a single estate.
The organically farmed vineyards are located near the town of Sant Sadurní d'Anoia, in the highest, freshest area of Penedès.
Produced by the Gramona winery, after a very gentle pressing the free-run juice of this Spanish white wine was fermented from a minimum of 40 days on its lees at a controlled temperature around 15ºC.
This white wine from Penedès was not aged in oak to preserve its varietal character.
Right now, Gramona Mas Escorpí 2017 is drinking nicely. However, since it has some ageing potential, you might want to store some bottles to enjoy its evolution.
If that is the case, drink through 2022.
The wine Gramona Mas Escorpí has an attractive, pale yellow colour with some golden tinges.
This Chardonnay from Penedès shows a well-defined varietal character. Juicy aromas of pears, tropical fruit and passion fruit, combined with notes of lemon peel, aniseed and white flowers. A pure, expressive organic white wine.
Fresh, medium-bodied and gently tart, this white wine by Gramona combines suggestions of white fruit, bitter herbs, a dash of tropical fruit, and a layer of underbrush and white flowers. Intense, long finish with some delicately bitter remembrances.
