Conceived along the lines of the famed German and Canadian icewines, Gramona Vi de Glass Rieling is not crafted following the same procedure as in the aforementioned cases.
Since in the Mediterranean area it is very difficult for the grapes to freeze naturally, some years ago the Gramona winery devised its own technique to produce this type of wine.
After a late harvest, the Riesling grapes were partially freezed and subsequently pressed in order to obtain a high-concentrated wine must.
Then, the must was fermented in stainless steel tanks for 8-9 weeks, until it reached an appropiate degree of sugar and alcohol. Then the wine, also known as Gramona Vi de Gel, was bottled.
A little-known sweet white wine from Penedés, Gramona Vi de Glass Riesling 2015 will evolve in the bottle for many years.
A masterly crafted product, it will pair excellently with sweet desserts, foie and soft chesses.
The wine Gramona Vi de Glass Riesling has a bright, clean, pale yellow colour with some golden tinges.
Fresh and pleasant, this icewine is full of citrus and exotic fruit, with remembrances of flowers, white fruit, dry apricots, orange blossom, honey and aromatic herbs.
Sweet, fresh and taut. There are notes of honey, kumquat, medlar and fresh herbs. This sweet wine from Gramona has a remarkable acidity and a long finish.
