The wine

Straw yellow monovarietal with fine gold reflections, clean and bright, agile in the glass, with good aromatic intensity, marked by the balance between varietal aromas of ripe fruit (peach, apricot, golden apple, ...) and a bouquet fine wood, represented with timid notes of dried fruits (hazelnuts, almonds) and elegant smoked notes; An attractive aromatic range, on a shy floral, mineral and aniseed background. In the mouth, we enjoy a sweet entry, with a tasty and fruity evolution, under the watchful eye of the wood; good structure and meatiness due to the work of the lees, boasting at the same time a fresh acidity and smoothness. Long aftertaste, marked by a fine bitterness, pleasant creaminess and a dry finish.

It is a wine made with Macabeu from vines over 35 years old, collected by hand, pressed directly, and at the end of fermentation, aged in new and old 300-liter French oak barrels, for approximately 4 or 5 months depending on the year, with a continuous weekly batônnage, which helps the wine to preserve and grow inside the barrel. Subsequently, they let it rest for a minimum of 1 year in the bottle before going on the market, after this time the integration of acidity, the barrel and the fruit is fantastic, right?

The winery

Let yourself be surprised by l'Apical, a project that was born in 2012 in the Penedès, by the hand of Sergi Sevillano, Martí Giralt and Josep Badia.

The idea of l'Apical has always been clear: Work with the autochthonous varieties of the Penedès; where the influence of the sun and the Mediterranean Sea make it a privileged territory for growing vineyards.

A very interesting project, aligned with the evolution of the new generations of the territory. Combining an old vineyard and a younger vineyard, they make wines loaded with love, dedication and tradition. What more could you want?
