Overview

III Lustros is a blend of the most age-worthy white varieties at Gramona, 70% Xarel.lo and 30% Macabeo found in their estate vineyards between La Plana and Font Jui. For generations, the Gramona family has farmed these wines rooted in chalky and pebbly limestone soils. Certified organic and biodynamic, these vines are harvested by hand, carefully sorted, and pressed whole-cluster. After primary fermentation in tank, it is aged on the lees under cork for at least 84 months. After aging, riddling and disgorgement are done manually, and the wine is finished without dosage. 70,000 bottles are released in an average vintage.

How did the Spanish Civil War lead to the discovery of Xarel.lo’s capacity to age and thus the creation of III Lustros? Xavier Gramona explains it all in this short video.
