Coll de la Sitja Ancestral
Ancestral is sparkling wine according to the ancestral method. Originally fresh and fruity, L'Apical made its variant slightly different. Sergi and Martí chose oak barrels for the fermentation process, making the wine a lot more complex, full-bodied and creamy. And you can taste that in this lemon-yellow Coll de la Sitja Ancestral. A delicious fresh-sour sparkling wine. Organic and suitable for vegans.

Why we love this wine
Who says Ancestral, says tradition. Sparkling wine has been produced in the same way since the 16th century. The fermentation process is characteristic. There are no added sugars or yeast – they only come from the vine itself. Before the fermentation is finished, and without filtering, the Ancestral is bottled. Further fermentation takes place in the bottle. This is how the iconic bubbles are created. Star of the show is the well-known Macabeu. A grape with fresh acidity that thrives in the warm Catalan climate. 9 months of maturation results in a blissful alternation of dry, fresh and fruity with a silky mousse.
What makes this winery so special
Winemakers Sergi Sevillano and Martí Giralt got to know each other during their training in oenology and viticulture. Sergi went on to become a sommelier and technician in a number of prestigious restaurants and wine shops. Martí grew up among the vineyards. Coming from a nest with more than 40 years of experience among the grapes. After each following their own path, they found each other again. Less than an hour's drive from Barcelona, in Penedès, they started l'Apical in 2012. Honest wine without too much intervention and with small productions.
Job's Tasting Notes
Complex, full and creamy thanks to fermentation in oak barrels. Spicy on the nose (fennel and cinnamon) and wonderfully fruity, with aromas of green plum and apple pie. In the mouth a fairly full and creamy Ancestral with sparkling mousse and fresh acidity.
