About the winery

Celler Credo is the second winery of the Recaredo family. While their own family name is synonymous with some of the best cava in Spain, Celler Credo produces still wines. The main focus is on producing white wines from the Penedès' parade grape variety, Xarel.lo. Eight hectares in the high altitudes, the so-called Alt Penedès, comprise the winery, which was the first in this region to be certified biodynamic.

About the wine

The Aloers was named after the peasants who owned land in the Penedès as early as the Middle Ages, were accordingly free and did not have to pay rent. The Xarel.lo comes from vineyards characterised by limestone. It was fermented spontaneously, leaving the Xarel.lo on the stalks and skins for a few hours. After fermentation, it remained on the fine lees in stainless steel for two months. It was bottled unfiltered without fining and without the addition of sulphur.


golden yellow


The 2018 Aloers smells slightly smoky including a touch of scamorza affumicata and combines a yellow fruit of nashi pears and mirabelles with fennel pollen and some light tobacco. There is also a hint of crumbly apple which gives a hint of the slightly extended maceration time.


The palate reveals a fine Xarel.lo that is soft and subtle up front, with just 10.5 % of alcohol, it seems prancingly light yet has substance. It really pushes on the back palate, revealing a fine tannic structure. The Aloers combines a bright fruit with a fine stony spiciness and salty notes. This is not so far removed from the cavas of Recaredo.
