145/365 – Catalonia – D.O. Penedes – Baix Penedes – Llorenc del Penedes – Wine Fair ViGralla – Gramona Gessami
….., or should I just say, DANCE! Party-time in Llorenc del Penedes with the ViGralla wine fair steaming ahead, full force. Music playing, people dancing, talking, enjoying the wine and food. It’s just another get together. Hot all the time but today morning we had some rain. It was just a very short shower but afterwards the humidity is rainforest type!
One more day of ViGralla, today Sunday. The fair yesterday was well visited and the evening blind tasting with Mar Galvan, was a utter success. So, we’re hoping to repeat it next year. Before we do, we still have to finish today’s activities. Garage tasting, guided tour of the village co-operative wine cellar are some of today’s activities. Music and artesian producers of different products is an addition today which we didn’t have yesterday and the we all want to enjoy the pairing by Agustin Palome Garcia. You’ll get to know more about that tomorrow, when I;ll be writing about the last day!
Gramona Gessami, 50% Muscat d’Alexandria, 20% Muscat Frontignan, 25% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Gewurztraminer
Yellow straw color with greenish reflections. Clean and bright. Extremely aromatic and fragrant nose with outstanding intense floral aromas, white stone fruit, citrus notes , herbs and mineral hints. Clean, defined and very nice. The palate is fres, mellow, with an unctuous, silky and tasty step marked by a high fruit weight and a soft touch. Great acidity, aromatic and well-defined that leads to a long finish that leaves memories of white flowers and citrus peel after-taste .
234 to go!
