Characteristics of Gramona Gra a Gra Pinot Noir
In Mas Escorpí, at 350 metres altitude, Pinot Noir grapes have been grown since 1984. In 2009, due to the high temperatures registered during the grape ripening process, a high alcohol content was reached before the skin and pips had achieved sufficient phenolic ripeness. That was when their staff decided to allow the grapes to over-ripen on the vine, make the grapes raisin-like, and thus being able to make a sweet Pinot Noir wine. To make Gra a Gra Pinot Noir 2010, the grapes are destemmed, sorted individually on the selection table, and put into wooden vats. A prefermentation maceration was carried out over 10 days to bring out the intense colour. The grapes were immediately devatted as soon as they began to ferment. On the same day, the third of the vineyard that was left to over-ripen was harvested. This was added to the must that began fermentation at 16ºC. The fermentation lasted for nearly 6 weeks until it was stopped naturally with 150 g/l of sugar and 13% vol. To refine the wine and add to its complexity, it was then aged for 7 months in French oak barrels.

Today, the D.O Penedès is experimenting with viticulture and winemaking like no other region in Spain, home to a vast range of different grape varieties. The region is home to traditional white and red varieties, foreign ones, noble ones, permitted grapes, experimental grapes, and those that demostrate intrinsic qualities. As well as the grapes, the production techniques used are also worth noting, the location of the vineyards, the yields per hectare, the wines produced using traditional, original or even exclusive blends, the different ageing times, as well as the complexity of the different barrels used! But the reality is, given the vast diversity, it can be difficult to pinpoint what really defines a wine from Penedès, since there are so many types of wines and wineries in the region. However, the common denominator of all the wines from Penedès continues to be balance and quality.
