Harvested according to the grapes' times of ripeness: first the Muscat de Frontignan, then the Gewürztraminer, followed by the Muscat of Alexandria and finally the Sauvignon Blanc. The varieties are vinted separately.

Fermentation on skins is used for maximum aromatic extraction from a soft pressing, obtaining only the flower must, or 40% extraction. The fermentation is later carried out at 13/15ºC.

Gramona, sets up in Yr.1881 in Spain with over 130 years history, produces the top quality and longest aged Cavas, with high recognition in the world.

Sight: Pale, bright green with straw-coloured reflections.

Nose: Aromatic burst. Like a walk in the spring, this wine reminds one of the coolness of fresh air, a bouquet of white flowers, (roses, jasmine, etc.), fennel, apricots and forest... all wrapped in a sweet atmosphere full of freshness, with a subtle mineral glow and an enveloping evocation of infusions and a citric breeze.

Taste: It surrounds you with a sweet atmosphere, freshness, mild and also flexible feel. Long, unctuous  aftertaste with the evocation of white flowers and citric peels.

Served as an aperitifs, or food pairing with oily fish, cheese and foie gras are good choice. The serving temperature should be from 8ºc to 10ºc.  It is in a perfect state when young, when the Muscat is most predominant.   It can keep one or two years in the bottle without difficulty.
