How do I make it up to my beloved?

I did a crappy thing. In the midst of an email drama with a former coworker, I panicked and said a crummy thing about my spouse, who was also on the email. Essentially I suggested my spouse was either stupid or lied about something and that this was standard behavior. It was untrue and traitorous and irrevocable and I humiliated my spouse and I am a complete stupid turd. And "I panicked" is some seriously weak sauce.
How can I make amends? (We have been together for many years, and my spouse is currently working out of town,if that is useful to you. I have never done anything remotely this shitty to my spouse.) I've apologized but it's nothing like enough. Why did I hurt someone I love so much with so little thought?
