Estate: 

Gramona's history is long an storied. For decades, the property has been a quality reference point in the zone. 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 alongs 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 is great winemaking regions) with high levels of sand and clay.


Tasting Notes: 

"The 2007 Gran Reserva Brut Nature III Lustros is a sparkling wine with a long history, aged for seven years in contact with the lees and kept without adding any liqueur d'expédition (Brut Nature). They like a blend of 75% Xarello and 25% Macabeo, which is a constant across the range, but the long aging provides for the telltale Penedès balsamic aromas of camphor, bay leaf, and fennel, with a touch of petrol. The palate shows a compact wine, with very good integration of all the components, bright acidity and fine bubbles that provide a silky texture. It feels younger than it is, a good compromise between youth and development. 45,000 bottles disgorged in six different batches". (Robert Parker)
