Penedes ‘Gessami’ (Sauvignon Blanc/Muscat)
• A blend of the native Muscat and the non-native but heat-tolerant Gewürztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc. Well over half of the cuvée is Sauvignon Blanc, which provides both the body and acidity. Depending on the vintage, either one or both Muscat varieties are used in addition to a small proportion of Gewürztraminer to boost the aromatics.
• Altitude: 200-400 meters.
• Hand harvested, fermented in tank.
• 3 months in tank.
