Gran Crysalis is a white organic crianza wine, made from hand-harvested xarel.lo and chardonnay grapes. The fermentation and battonage take place in French oak barrels during 4 months. Only the barrels marked with the symbol + are selected for this great wine.
The 2022 harvest
The 2022 harvest on our Can Martí Estate started on 4th August, 5 days earlier than usual because of the drought and the rapid maturing of the earlier varieties, and ended on the 14th of September. Since the end of the spring and throughout the summer we have had 4 severe heatwaves. In 2022 we have had between 20% and 30% less production of grapes – depending on the variety – compared to the previous year due to the intense drought, but that said, the health of the grapes has been impeccable together with a balanced acidity, will let us make great quality still and sparkling wines.
The tasting note of the white wine Gran Crisalys 2022
Old gold coloured white wine with golden green reflections, clean and transparent, with a medium density in the glass. The nose gives off clean fragrance, with white flowers and ripe vine fruit, on a penetrating mineral aroma. In the mouth it is enveloping, with a firm and balanced step, and with an apple touch and an unctuous memory of pastries. Vegetable finish, it is a complex and pleasant round wine.
