Description

Gramona Vi de Glass Gewürztraminer Crianza 2018

Gramona Vi de Glass is an ice wine that has been produced since 1997. It is a highly concentrated, sweet, fruity and refreshing wine.

Pale yellow colour with green highlights. Very expressive bouquet of mandarin citrus, lychee, peach and mango in syrup with delicate white rose and orange blossom floral fragrances. Light and silky on the palate with a great fruit and honey presence as the aromas follow through to the palate. Refreshing finish that balances the sweetness and encourages you to take another sip. Ideal on its own or enjoyed as an afternoon treat with friends.

100% Gewürztraminer. This sweet wine was born from the idea of producing a wine with similar characteristics to Eiswein (ice wine) despite the Penedès region not having the right climatic conditions (i.e. freezing temperature during the harvest months). In order to achieve this, after a late harvest the must goes through partial freezing, which enables full oenological control of the process, supraextraction and cryoextraction in a cold chamber, using a yeast with an accentuated plasmolysis effect, especially selected by the University of Bordeaux.

After years of research, this wine is currently made with a new prototype fed by two freezing chambers that work with liquid nitrogen at -15°C. This improves the freezing process of the grapes, making it faster and more even. The must ferments in stainless steel tanks for 2 and a half months.
Ageing potential: Shows a great ageing capacity and will evolve very well in bottle.
