Review

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 Riesling 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, rich in exotic aromas, which will continue ageing forever in the thick, dark, glass bottle especially designed to safeguard its maturing.

Vi de Glass Riesling is a sweet wine of great aromatic expressivity; on the nose, its fruitiness is predominant (citrus fruits, mandarins, pineapple and pear) as well as a floral character, on a subtle background of honey and aromatic herbs. On the palate, it offers a pleasant entry and a silky, unctuous passage through the mouth, with a very refreshing finish which offsets the sweetness that doesn't make it cloying. It proves an ideal mid-afternoon wine, if opened while still young, or to serve with fruit cocktails, truffles... a dessert wine, naturally; but also perfect to put with strong cheeses, pâtés..., as it becomes more mature.
