This Abadal Picapoll was produced in the Pla de Bages DO.
This Spanish white wine is a single varietal Picapoll, a long-forgotten indigenous grape which in the last years has become one of the emblems of the Pla de Bages DO, located in central Catalonia.
The Abadal winery has been the main responsible of this fortunate recovery.
This single varietal white Picapoll wine is made from vines located at an altitude of 600 metres above sea level.
After the harvest, the grapes were macerated with the skins for 10 hours, gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks.
Then the wine was aged on its lees for 3 months in those same tanks. Finally, it was filtered and clarified.
Drink Abadal Picapoll 2018 until 2021.

Pineapple and mango with a fresh twist. Nice!!
Gently tar, with dry fruit and a tropical touch. Good with many kinds of food. Interesting grape variety.
