Product Description

The young AT Roca winery has already made a name for itself as a fine producer of organic sparkling wines.

A varietal Macabeo, the wine AT Roca Esparter is an interesting Spanish sparkling wine. The grapes come from a single, 5-hectare vineyard, called Finca Esparter, located in the Serra de l'Ordal, at the very heart of Penedès.

Northeast-oriented, the vineyards of this Clàssic Penedès receive a moderate amount of sunlight, a fact that allows for a slow and steady ripening of the grapes.

Traditionally vinified following the Champenoise method, this Gran Reserva Brut Nature was first aged for 7 months in oak barrels after completing alcoholic fermentation.

Once bottled, the sparkling wine AT Roca Esparter 2016 completed secondary fermentation and was aged for 40 months in the cellar before being released onto the market.

This versatile Clàssic Penedès Brut Nature will nicely accompany a full course meal.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The sparkling wine AT Roca Esparter is pale straw with some golden tinges.


A textbook Macabeo, full of intense, fresh and suggestive aromas. Loads of white fruit nuanced by touches of vanilla, hazelnuts, beurre noisette, quince jelly and aromatic herbs. This Clàssic Penedès organic sparkling wine is quite complex.


This organic sparkling wine of AT Roca is fresh, lively and gently creamy. Richly layered, with a mineral background, some remembrances of pears and apples, and some smokey and toasted nuances as well. Fine bubbles and well-balanced acidity. Long, delicate finish.

Our personal opinion

The sparkling wine AT Roca Esparter 2016 greatly benefits from its brief ageing in oak. An elegant, very versatile Macabeo.

Intense and balanced
Textured, layered and vinous. This is very good.

This sparkler has good bones. Definitely not your typical summer bubbly, it needs to be paired with food. Sensational with creamy cheese and chicken.
