Llumí, which means “Match” in Catalan, is a range of wines that give an excellent introduction to the Celler Alimara philosophy. They are small volume, hand made examples of a food friendly, fruit forward style of winemaking. Designed to be enjoyed without pretension, they nevertheless ooze quality and will satisfy everyone from the casual to the more seasoned drinker.
El Senyal, which means “The Signal” in Catalan, is a range of wines that reflect the best traditions, capabilities and potential of the Terra Alta region. We use the local grape varieties that have grown in this area for centuries, choosing the best fruit, often from old vines, to make wines that capture the heart of the land. In order to bring the most out of the fruit, we choose to ferment and mature in the most felicitous way, including using concrete fermenters and wooden foudres, as well as a sensitive use of both new and aged French oak barrels. The resulting wines show elegance and finesse and have the capability to age.
La Xispa, which means “Spark” in Catalan, is only made in special years. The best Carignan and Grenache grapes and the best barrels are selected to make this special wine.
Pinzellada are a range of wines made from singular parcels, ferments or barrels that provide a unique experience to our customers. Each particular wine features a different “paint stroke” on the front label. [Not available in all markets.]
With a long tradition in Terra Alta of similar “Brisat” wines, this is our first “orange” wine. With 50 days natural fermentation “with skins” (or “AmbPells” in Catalan), six months on lees in a large oak foudré and bottling without filtration put this unique experience in to the category of “natural wines”.
