Bottle size and vintage
Gramona created its Vi de Glass range in 1997, seeking the essence of the grape and modelling its products on the delightful German ice wines, the famous Eiswein. They are naturally concentrated sweet wines which differ from Eiswein, mainly due to the fact that freezing doesn't take place in the vineyard but in the winery, in special chambers, in the same way as state-of-the-art kitchens in prestigious restaurants use nitrogen for their intricate gastronomic creations.
Aiming to express all the grape's essence, Gramona makes its Vi de Glass Gewürztraminer with grapes gathered late, which freeze in two chambers that operate at a temperature of -15ºC with the help of liquid nitrogen. This favours a speedy freezing of the grapes and results in uniformity. The must ferments for a longer period of time than usual, for two and a half months, due to the high concentration of sugar and this whole process leads to a fruity and very concentrated wine, both sweet and refreshing, which will continue ageing forever in the thick, dark, glass bottle especially designed to safeguard its maturation.
Vi de Glass Gewürztraminer exhibits an immense aromatic expressivity, featuring citrus notes, predominantly exotic fruits (lychees, guavas, mangos, medlars, apricots) and a delicate floral perfume (orange blossom and rose water). On the palate it gives a delightful entry and a silky passage through the mouth, unctuous and with plentiful fruit. It has a very refreshing finish which offsets the sweetness and makes it very inviting. Regarding pairings there are numerous possibilities, especially for fruit-based desserts that bring out the citrus, tropical fruit and floral touches. It proves a perfect mid-afternoon wine to enjoy in good company.
