Characteristics of Floral d'AT Roca
Floral d’AT Roca is a white wine from the D.O Penedès region produced by the AT Roca winery. This wine is a blend of 2 different grape varieties: Macabeo (65%) and Malvasía (35%)
The grapes used to make Floral d’AT Roca come from one of the three vineyards in the Penedès region are overseen by the winery. The vineyard is located on the catalan costal range and grows both the grape varieties used to make this wine. The agriculture techniques used on the farm are carried out in an ecological manner, taking into account the importance of organic viticulture. The vineyards that work with the winery are old. The harvest is carried out manually.
At the winery and after being pressed, the grapes undergo fermentation, which lasts for close to a month in stainless steel tanks at a controlled and constant temperature of 15ºC. Following the various processes of the vinification process, the wine is blended. Floral d’AT Roca is not aged before it is bottled and marketed.
AT Roca is a project lead by Agustí Torello Sibil, who has years of experience working at the family winery Agustí Torelló Mata. Agustí Torello Sibill is being acompanied on this adventure by his son Agustí Torelló Roca, a young winemaker with a bright future.
Today, the D.O Penedès is experimenting with viticulture and winemaking like no other region in Spain, home to a vast range of different grape varieties. The region is home to traditional white and red varieties, foreign ones, noble ones, permitted grapes, experimental grapes, and those that demostrate intrinsic qualities. As well as the grapes, the production techniques used are also worth noting, the location of the vineyards, the yields per hectare, the wines produced using traditional, original or even exclusive blends, the different ageing times, as well as the complexity of the different barrels used! But the reality is, given the vast diversity, it can be difficult to pinpoint what really defines a wine from Penedès, since there are so many types of wines and wineries in the region. However, the common denominator of all the wines from Penedès continues to be balance and quality.
