2022 Gramona Gessami Blanco BIO
Gessami means jasmine. This cava house harvests its grapes just before they are fully ripe, because oxidation of the grape or juice is the greatest danger. This results in a low alcoholic wine within their range of still wines.
The Gessami is an aromatic dry white wine consisting of apricots, flowers and minerals. The Gramona Gessamí is a white wine made from 40% Muscat de Frontignan, 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 15% Gewurztraminer and 5% Muscat de Alexandria. The wine is low in alcohol and is very aromatic yet dry with spicy musky notes of jasmine, lychee, honeysuckle and pear. This is an ideal accompaniment to Asian (spicy) dishes.
The wine is certified organic.
The very dynamic family business Gramona has existed since 1881, currently the 5th generation of mainly 150 ha own vineyards makes formidable sparkling wines. Traditional, but using modern technology. Since the opening of the new Bodega in 2006 just outside the village, Gramona is also technically completely ready for the coming years. In a Research and Development program, research is conducted at a very high level into climate change, ecological viticulture, sustainability and everything related to the formation and preservation of the mousse. The oenologist Jaume Gramona, who runs the company with his cousin Xavier, teaches at the University of Tarragona. Gramona has a low yield per hectare for Cava producers. In the summer, a green harvest is done, with an excess of bunches being cut away. The company makes its own yeasts and liqueur d'expédition in a more than a hundred years old solera system. Gramona's stock is about 1.5 million bottles. The Cava market is dominated by large houses with huge volumes. Top companies like Gramona have a completely different philosophy and work exclusively on quality. Currently, they have three locations in Sant Sadurni for the production of their wines.
Gramona is, first and foremost, always concerned with maximum quality in the wines and champagnes. This aim is reflected in every moment and in every step of the process (pruning, harvesting, production, selection). This ethos is conveyed in the coat of arms: "Viti, Vini, Vitae": the vine, wine, life, a synthesis of our history. As a company with a long tradition , respect for the area and nature is of paramount importance. At Gramona they use the exceptional terroir and the experience in the traditional production ("Champenois") to produce high-quality and, above all, very elegant Cavas.
