Viticulture and Characteristics of the Season
The grapes that originate this wine grows in the upper part of the Terra Remota vineyard, facing the Mediterranean. It is a granitic soil, with good fertility, cultivated through organic agriculture and surrounded by native trees.
During the summer before harvest time, the great luminosity and effect of the north wind (tramontana) shaped the character of this Black Grenache. Thus, a great aromatic development was achieved, with excellent sanitary conditions and perfect phenolic ripeness at harvest time at the end of September.
Winemaking and Ageing
Gg is a special wine for many reasons, one of them is the vinification carried out in concrete eggs, which allows self-fermentation and self-aging due to the shape of this deposit and the microporosity of its material. Therefore, maximum varietal expression is achieved, with minimal intervention, in a protected environment and extending the skin maceration for 5 weeks.
During aging, the wine manages to round out its tannins, reach colour stabilization and keep aromatic freshness, thanks to the constant movement of its fine lees for 9 months. A Grenache 100% representative of the Empordà, its climate and its surroundings is obtained, unfiltered, straight into the bottle.
Tasting Notes and Food Pairing
This wine is a tribute to Germaine, mother of Emma, grandmother of Adèle and Adrien, through the elegance of a glass of wine. Captivating garnet red color with violet reflections. It shows very fresh aromas of raspberry, sour cherry, wildflowers and freshly cut grass. On palate it’s silky, with ripe and present tannins. Long, enveloping, and seductive finish.
Enjoying this wine is easy, a good table of artisan cheeses, local ham, a wide range of olives and bread with tomato (pa amb tomaquet) is enough to appreciate it in all its magnitude. It also works very well with dishes such as chicken with shrimp a “sea and mountain preparation” so typical of the Costa Brava, gnocchi with pesto and parmesan, truffled eggs and even a fine Sacher cake.
