Celler Credo 'Aloers', Penedes, Spain 2019
The Recaredo estate in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia is justly regarded as the greatest producer of sparkling wine in the Penedès. Under the stewardship of the visionary Ton Mata, whose grandfather Josep founded the estate in 1924, Recaredo became the first biodynamic producer in the Penedès (certified in 2010). Celler Credo is their still wine project, the only project established in Penedes to work exclusively with the native white variety Xarel-lo. Like the wines of Recaredo, Celler Credo wines are organic and biodynamic. Its site of origin, called “Montargull,” was planted to bush vines in 1970 at 230 meters of altitude in the commune of Avinyonet del Penedès, 15 kilometers outside Recaredo’s cellar in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia. This wine is flinty, salty, focused and textured. An electric white.
Pairing: Light seafood, sardines
