Characteristics of Temps de Flors
Temps de Flors is a young white wine from D.O. Penedès produced by Bodegues Sumarroca. The winery is located in the municipality of Subirats, in Alto Penedès (Barcelona). Temps de Flors is a coupage of the varieties Xarello, Muscat and Gewurztraminer. The grapes come from their own farms of Sumarroca (located near Sant Sadurní d'Anoia) and Sabartés (located next to Llorenç del Penedès). The Sumarroca farm is located in the northernmost part of D.O. Penedès, with soils of a high concentration of limestone and gravel with clay. As for the farm Sabartés, it is located further to the south, almost at sea level. This causes the ocean breeze to influence the grapes, giving the wine a certain Mediterranean character.
The production of Temps de Flors starts with a separate harvest for each variety, when they reach their optimal ripening point. When the grapes arrive at the winery, a short pre-fermentation maceration is carried out at 10ºC for the varieties Muscat and Gewurztraminer. Their aim is to extract their maximum varietal potential. Then, they carry out soft pressing and decanting by gravity, before the alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature of 14ºC for 20 to 22 days.
Finally, at the end of the fermentation, they perform the racking to achieve fine lees, which remain in the deposits for 4 weeks.

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.
