Toni and Miquel Coca i Fitó
The wine is made by Toni and Miquel Coca i Fitó, who grew up on the family vineyard in Alt Penedès. Produced from ld vines (50-70 years) and limestone/sandy soils of Terra Alta, the most southerly wine producing region of Calatonia, and at the highest altitude, no wonder then tat terra Alta translates to ‘high land’ in Catalan.
70% Garnacha Blanc, and 30% Macabeo.
Bright lemon colour. Aromas of white acacia flowers with fruity notes of apple and apricot. This wine is fruity and mineral on the palate. These flavours appear again on the nose but even stronger. The wine is medium bodied with intense flavours and good structure. Smoky and honey notes also appear when drinking this wine.
