ORGANIC & BIODYNAMIC VITICULTURE

Based on careful observation and the management of the factors which influence our terroir and its habitat. We do not apply chemical herbicides or pesticides, but instead we use natural resources, with the primary aim of maintaining a balance in the environment, and we preserve spontaneous ground cover in order to obtain spongy soils.

Through biodynamics, which goes one step beyond organic growing, we breathe life into our vineyards and seek to raise levels of biodiversity: we apply plantbased infusions and decoctions to avoid pest infestations, and we make our own animal and vegetal compost and the preparations of our own farm.

PRODUCTION

Gramona Vi de Glass (Eiswein) was born in 1997. Today, after years of research, this wine is made with a new prototype fed by two cold chambers. The grapes are cooled from +25°C to +5°C, preparing them for subsequent freezing, using liquid nitrogen, at -6°C or -8°C, depending on the concentration of sugars.

This improves the freezing of the grapes, achieving greater speed and homogeneity in the process. The must ferments in 300-litre barrels for 2 months. This fermentation takes longer than usual due to the high sugar concentration, resulting in very concentrated, sweet, fruity and refreshing wines.

TASTING NOTES 

star

APPEARANCE

Straw-yellow with brilliant green highlights.

NOSE

Subtle at first, becoming more expressive after airing. Floral notes, citrus-like aromas (limes, grapefruit peel), tropical fruit (ripe pineapples and mangos), table grapes, vine peaches, acacia honey.

PALATE

Pleasant on entry, unctuous and glyceride over the palate, sustained acidity on the finish, bringing liveliness and freshness.

FOOD PAIRINGS

Perfect with light, and particularly fruit-based, desserts. Due to its lovely acidity, it also pairs nicely with foie gras and medium-strong cheeses.
