D.O. Penedès (Catalonia)
Celler Credo is the organic and biodynamic wine project of the Recaredo family for the Penedès Designation of Origin.
In recent years, Celler Credo has established itself as one of the leading wineries in Penedès specializing only in autochthonous varieties and a firm commitment to the implementation of programmes aimed at preserving the ecosystem. Its range of varietal wines from xarel·lo, as well as the collection of biodiversity wines (Ratpenat-Macabeo, Volaina-Parellada and Mirabelles-Malvasía de Sitges) have earned the admiration of critics both national and international, with consolidation in demanding markets such as Japan, Canada, the United States and the Nordic countries.
Aloers offers the freshest, most genuine expression of the Mediterranean xarel·lo grown on calcareous soils. Celler Credo’s team wants to ensure a wine of great vivacity that can have a long life in the bottle. All Celler Credo grapes are harvested by hand to ensure a precise selection of the fruit and to guarantee its excellent quality. Furthermore, Celler Credo takes great care over grape ripening with the aim of producing wines with natural, fresh acidity.
Aloers is made by allowing the must to macerate for a few hours with the grape stems and skins. Celler Credo’s wines ferment always on indigenous yeast isolated from Celler Credo’s vineyards, an essential element for producing truly terroir wines. With the aim of giving structure and finesse to the wine, lees are stirred for approximately one month. Then, the wine remains in stainless steel tank for 6 months on the fine lees.
Aloers seeks to give the fullest possible expression to the terroir and may have completely natural sediments due to a minimal intervention. This wine is vinified and bottled on the property.
