Gramona III Lustros 2014
Straw colored with gorgeous golden highlights, this sparkling Cava is made with Xarel·lo and Macabeu grape varietals, and is aged for 84 months using 100% artisanal processes. It’s intense on the nose, with a flurry of aromas—baked apples, sweet pears, ripe citrus, and grapefruit peel, and undertones of faded florals and herbs. It gives way to aging notes of hazelnuts, brioche, and toffee. On the palate, it is powerful, with a great structure, and is fine and creamy. Lively and refreshing, it gives notes of candied fruit, brioche, nut, pear, peach, and apricot.
