A wine conceived along the lines of the famed icewines produced in Germany and Canada, there is nonetheless an important difference between northern-climate icewines and Gramona Vi de Glass Gewürztraminer. While the latter sweet white wine is made from grapes frozen in the cellar, the former are produced from naturally frozen grapes.
The winemaking process goes as follows. Once in the facilities of the Gramona winery, the overripe Gewürztraminer grapes were frozen with liquid nitrogen until they reached a temperature of -15ºC. After fermenting for over 2 months in stainless steel tanks, Gramona Vi de Glass Gewürztraminer 2016 was bottled.
This sweet wine from Penedès will certainly improve over the next years.
Also known as Vi de Gel Gramona, this sweet wine is excellent with coffee and desserts. For a less conventional pairing, try it with foie or soft cheese.
The sweet wine Gramona Vi de Glass Gewürztraminar has a brilliant, crisp straw-yellow colour with some golden reflections.
Pleasant and intense, this Gewürztraminer carries lively aromas of citrus, white fruit, Chinese plums, apricot, and lychee. There is a subtle floral background which suggests roses and blossom flowers.
Flavorful, elegant, and fresh, with a sweetness that is not oversweet, but perfectly balanced with a crisp acidity. On the palate, the fruit of this sweet wine from Gramona appears more syrupy, with a sort of tropical character. Silky, creamy texture, and excellent finish.
