A white wine made as if it were red wine. May sound crazy, but tastes delicious! Grape skins that interfere with the fermentation give the Methòdic its light orange color. Daring, sure. But therefore with all the more character. Soft, round and pleasantly sour. Winemakers Sergi and Martí named this wine after their well-considered methodology: extremely precise and with respect for flora, fauna and biodiversity.

Why we love this wine
Meet the Xarel.lo Vermell: a rare Catalan grape variety that suddenly turns bright pink just before harvest ('Vermell' is Catalan for red). This graceful grape is a mutation of the classic variety and has a thicker skin. Perfect for boosting the tannin structure. Methòdic is one of a kind. A fresh orange wine that was created by allowing the skins to ferment for a few days. For the maturation of 4 months, we did not choose stainless steel or oak, but traditional clay amphora pots.
What makes this winery so special
It all started when Sergi Sevillano and Martí Giralt met during their training in oenology and viticulture. Martí knows the vineyards inside out. Coming from a family with more than 40 years of experience between the grapes. Sergi became a sommelier and technician in a number of prestigious restaurants and wine shops. After each following their own path, they found each other again. In Penedès, less than an hour's drive from Barcelona, they started l'Apical in 2012. Honest wine, made without too much intervention and in small productions.
Job's Tasting Notes
In the nose a fruity oasis of fresh apricots, grapefruit and wild strawberries. Topped off with aromas of fennel and even subtle saltiness. This nice and fresh orange wine has a fine acidity and a soft, round taste. Minerality and a light body give a wonderful mouthfeel. Add to that the slight dryness of tannins and you have a flavor profile that will blow your mind!
