This is the new vintage of Gramona Savinat Sauvignon Blanc, a single varietal Sauvignon Blanc Spanish white wine produced by the Gramona winery from a single estate composed of slate soils, and located in the Montserrat mountain range.
Farmed following organic and biodynamic principles, the grapes were harvested by hand and selected in the cellar. After a gentle pressing with no maceration, followed by a 12-hour decanting period, the must was transferred into French oak barrels (1/3 new, 1/3 2nd year, 1/3 3rd year), where it was fermented at a low temperature.
After that, Gramona Savinat Sauvignon Blanc 2018 from Penedès was aged for some weeks in the barrels with periodic stirrings.
Belonging to the Infanterrible collection, Savinat 2018 from Gramona has a production of only 4,925 bottles.
A very elegant, uncommon organic white wine from Penedès.
The white wine Gramona Savinat Sauvignon Blanc has a pale yellow colour with some golden tinges.
Very varietal aromas, precise and well-defined. A note of gooseberry, nuanced by some tropical, citrusy touches, and the proverbial Sauvignon Blanc "cat's pee" aroma. This white wine from Penedès also carries an original note of Mediterranean herbs, and some toasted and smoky notes.
Excellent definition and balance in a white wine from Gramona which is richly textured and flawlessly crafted. The wood and the fruit are perfectly integrated, and the acidity is superb. Long finish, with a distinctive salty touch.
|Our personal opinion||
Elegant and substantial, Gramona Savinat Sauvignon Blanc 2018 is a wine halfway between the Marlborough Sauvignons of New Zealand and the French Sauvignons.
