Details

Of the three wines that constitute the recently released collection of certified organic white wines by the highly respected Celler Gramona winery, Gramona Roent Xarel·lo 2014 is probably the most arcane

This white wine is made from Xarel·lo Vermell ("Red Xarel.lo"), a rare mutation of the well-known Xarel.lo that produces rosy-coloured grapes which bring the wine a uniquely delicate character.

As well as the rest of the wines of the collection, Gramona Roent Xarel.lo 2014 is a single estate wine coming from certified organic vines grown in Font Jui, in the heart of the Penedés DO. The vines grow on soils primarily composed of limestone and clay, a composition that suits Xarel.lo perfectly and allows the grapes to fully express their distinctive personality.

Manually harvested and carefully selected, the grapes were cold-soaked before being transferred into a 3000-litre used wooden vat, where they were fermented and micro-oxygenated. Thus, the dominant oaky aromas coming from new wood were not imparted on the wine.

Drink until 2020.

 

 

Additional Information

Appearance

Pale, clean yellow colour with greenish tinges and a rosy hue at the rim.

Nose

A panoply of fruit: apples, pomelos, pears and apricots, along with white flowers, aniseed, aromatic herbs and some mineral remembrances.

Palate

Fresh, light and linear, though not lacking in structure. Original, uncommon notes of herbs and dry fruit, and even some distant remembrances of pomegranate. Marvelous acidity and long finish with some spicy, earthy remembrances.

Our personal opinion

Gramona Roent Xarel·lo 2014 is extremely interesting because of its variety, its elaboration and its terroir. For wine lovers and wine adventurers. We suggest that you do not serve it too cold.

    This is not a white wine, not a rosé wine, not an orange wine. It has the best of the three. Crisp as a white, fruity as a rosé, textured as an orange. Yesª!!
