To begin this review I think I should explain the name. A “graspa” isn’t actually a thing that exists. It is a term made up by Vieni Estates for their version of a Grappa.

Much like champagne, the term Grappa can only be applied to spirits made in Italy.

This “graspa” has had chili peppers and maple syrup added to the mix, giving it a very unique flavour profile.

I enjoyed this with a good friend that had come from out of town for a weekend and a good time was had by all. This is most definitely a sipper and a single glass can last quite some time.

It sits at 43% ABV and is only available from the estate. It comes to $59.95 a bottle for 700ml.

Appearance: Platinum colour.
Aroma: Vanilla, chille pepper, confected cherries.
Taste: Confected cherry still, Maple syrup, vanilla.
Aftertaste: Syrup burn.
Overall: Very unique and tasty. I wouldn’t really pair this with any food save a very light dessert or maybe just some strawberries on their own.
