L’Olivera Agaliu 2019

13.5% abv

Vol- 75cl

Agaliu is an old catalana word meaning hope and aspiration. Agaliu is a pleasant delicate wine that reflects our desire to create a fresh, smooth wine with just the right tints of oak, using only Macabeu grapes. Straw yellow colour, bright aspect. Intense nose with aromas of white fruit reminiscent of pears. Subtle and elegant, the notes of aromatic plants and the aromas of brioche stand out. On the palate it is fine and balanced and calls to mind white fruit with good acidity that gives it depth and a long finish.

The grapes are manually harvested and pressed whole, including seeds and stems. This wine is fermented at a controlled temperature (15-17ºC) in American (80%) and French (20%) oak casks, with a percentage of new wood always below 15% in order to respect the Macabeu variety traits. Aging takes place on the lees. To make the most of these, during 3-4 months, the wine is stirred on a weekly basis, creating a more full-bodied palate, and subtly and elegantly incorporating the woody notes into the flavour of the wine.
