Winemaker Notes

Golden with intense gold tones. Subtle at frst, after 12 years ageing it needs a moment or two to wake up! Yellow fruit which ranges from cool tones to mature notes. Candied fruit, plums, apples and pears. Perfumed tones (patchouli, incense), balsamic notes (eucalyptus, rosemary, bay leaf, fennel). The bakery type notes turn into fnely roasted aromas (nuts, toffee, cocoa). Some earthy, saline aromas with a trace of iodine in the background. Fresh on entry, surprisingly fne carbon dioxide, creamy but with a constant lively acidity. A metallic note adds to the fresh fnish with nice, sustained acidity.

This cava will be enjoyed with the most exquisite dishes. It is good with all types of food and recipes and is an ideal accompaniment throughout an entire “tasting menu”. But of course, good company and great occasions are what suit it best. To enhance the beauty of this fne cava, we suggest you serve it at 46 - 50º F in a large balloon wine glass to help it aerate and express its aromas to the full. Gramona Enoteca can be enjoyed now or, if stored in the right conditions, in a few years’ time.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 96
Surprisingly, given the quality, 2002 was an unpromising wet, cold year. This wine, among Spain's best Cavas, was aged on lees sur lattes for over 180 months before being hand riddled and disgorged. At first it’s aromatically quiet, before blossoming with roasted nuts, crystallised ginger and floral notes. The wine is pale gold, and appears to be still. Then, in the mouth it reveals an elegant effervescence - it’s vividly fresh, showing an energetic youth. It's exceptionally refined and the finish is mineral and long. It's delicious now, and it will be fascinating to see how it develops with bottle age. Drinking Window 2018 - 2026

Gramona, Spain
Gramona Winery Image
Gramona’s history is long and storied and the property has been a quality reference point in the zone for decades. As far back as 1816 a member of the family has been making wine in the Penedes. 1921 marks the year when the Gramona name began to be put on bottles of "Cava Champagne". Today, the house is one of the few remaining family-owned estates in the region, with many having been bought by large companies.

Gramona is located in the Penedes region of Spain just 45 minutes from Barcelona along Spain's Mediterranean coast. The Climate in the Penedes is mild and warm, benefiting mostly from a Mediterranean influence. However, as the differences in elevation are quite dramatic (with some vines at over 700 meters), there are many microclimates in the zone. Soil in the region is not particularly rich in organic material (as is often the case in great winemaking regions) with high levels of sand and clay.

Gramona is, unfortunately, one of the last remaining family-owned cava houses of the Penedes. Here, elderly ladies from the village carefully wrap each bottle before being packed for transport and the entire operation is carried out by people who love the family and the estate. For the property, their reference points are in Champagne in France, and they regularly taste wines from this area next to their own (with often astonishing results). However, pricing remains very low compared to even the most mundane, negociant Champagnes on the market. These are some of the best values in our portfolio.

Known for bold reds, crisp whites, easy-drinking rosés, distinctive sparkling, and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place primary emphasis on its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally hot and dry. In the center of the country lies a vast, arid plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought.

Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy Spanish reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache). Rioja also produces rich, nutty whites from the local Viura grape.

Ribera del Duero is gaining ground for Spanish wines with its single varietal Tempranillo wines, recognized for their concentration of fruit and opulence. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, specializes in bold, full-bodied Spanish red wine blends of Garnacha (Grenache), Cariñena (Carignan), and often Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a Spanish sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. In the cool, damp northwest Spanish wine region of Galicia, refreshing Spanish white Albariño and Verdejo dominate.

Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez.

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
