This is the new vintage of AT Roca Brut Reserva, an organic Sparkling wine labeled under the Clàssic Penedès DO.
The grapes come from organically grown vines over 30 years of age, scattered over 32 plots with different soil compositions and sun orientations, all of them located in the heart of the Penedès DO.
Produced following the traditional method by AT Roca winery, the grapes completed secondary fermentation in the bottle and the resulting wine was aged for a period of 20 months.
