"Equal parts Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Chardonnay. Age of Vineyards: 20-30 years old. Aging: 24 months (longest aging of a Dry type in the world of CAVA). Dosage: 5 grams per liter." "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." -Importer [+]
