This is the new vintage of this organic Spanish white wine is produced by the AT Roca winery.
Made from a blend of Macabeo and Malvasia de Sitges, the Macabeo vineyards of Floral d'AT Roca are located in Conca de L'Anoia, a subzone of the Penedès DO located near the slopes of the Montserrat Mountains. As for the Malvasia, the estate is in the midst of the Garraf Mountains, an area with a mineral, calcareous soil just a few kilometers from the Mediterranean Sea.
After the harvest, the wine was vinified in stainless steel tanks for about 25 days. Then Floral d'AT Roca 2017 was aged for 4 months on its lees. Finally, this organic white wine from Penedès was blended and bottled.
Drink until 2021.
The white wine Floral d'AT Roca has a clean, bright straw yellow colour with some golden tinges.
This blend of Macabeo and Malvasia from Penedès smells of orange blossom, geranium, violets, roses and lilies. On the background, aromas of white fruit, honey and citrus.
Fresh and delicate, this organic white wine by the AT Roca winery has a gentle character. Nicely balanced with notes of white fruit, a clear remembrance of peach, a dash of aromatic herbs and dim mineral remembrances. Lively, crisp acidity and long finish.

I LIKE THIS KIND OF WINE. IT IS GENTLY SWEET, BUT AT THE SAME TIME EDGY AND FRESH,
Delicately mineral and complex, with a good structure and a flowery touch. Quite pure.
