Wines elaborated by our family after years of history lived alongside each wine and each grape variety. These are wines that tend to go against the grain, created in spite of trends, and which sometimes succeed in setting them.

* The Demeter seal guarantees that a wine has been produced following biodynamic methods. At Gramona, it relates to both the growing of the grapes and the winemaking.

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 preserve spontaneous ground cover in order to obtain spongy soils, we apply plant-based infusions and decoctions to avoid pest infestations, and we produce our own animal and vegetal compost from our orchard of medicinal plants and our farm of cows, sheep, chickens, and horses.

PRODUCTION

We collect the grapes from the Mas Escorpí estate in 25kg crates. The selected grapes are then sorted again on the sorting table. The prefermentation takes place at 12ºC, and the fermentation and maceration take in 3000l foudres, with a traditional punching down of the cap carried out over a two-week period to preserve the tanins’ silkness. After devatting, the wine goes into 300 litre French Allier oak barrels (fine grain and medium toast) and undergoes a spontaneous malolactic fermentation. The wine remains on its fine lees until the first racking in spring. It will be aged for a total of 8 months in a 33% of new barrels before going into bottle, where it will spend at least one year rounding out before being released onto the market.

TASTING NOTES 

star

APPEARANCE

Medium intense garnet hue with raspberry tints .

NOSE

Intense and concentrated.  Wild fruit in season (blackberries and blackcurrants). A floral overtone (violets) melts into aromatic notes from the wine’s ageing – vanilla, pepper, tobacco leaves and hints of chocolate.

PALATE

Forceful attack, medium-bodied, pronounced tannin. Retronasal aromas of dark fruit, spice and a touch of tapenade, complemented by a long-lingering and lively acidity on the finish.

FOOD PAIRINGS

Red meat, feathered game, stews.
