Gramona is a small, family owned winery in Penedes that makes some of Spain's top Cava's. Almost every top restaurant in Spain has a Cava from Gramona on the list. The Imperial Gran Reserva is aged 3 to 4 years in the bottle before being released. Flavors of baked apples, pie crust, lemon curd, white flowers and spice make this a muy tasty mouthful.
"Pale yellow-gold. Displays vibrant, mineral-tinged citrus fruit and floral scents, along with suggestions of fennel, toasted grain and quinine. Silky, seamless and dry, offering intense Meyer lemon and intriguingly delicate pear flavors. Pure and sharply focused, with outstanding finishing clarity and stony persistence. This graceful, finely balanced Cava delivers outstanding value and competes favorably with plenty of Champagnes that sell for twice as much, if not more." -Josh Raynolds
