“By doing the good things right, you make the world more beautiful! It's that simple”
With this belief, Derrick Neleman started his study to become a biodynamic farmer. After his training, he ended up on the vineyards in Spain. When he realized how culturally historically important wine is as a binder in a civilization, everything fell into place. Derrick wanted to make the most beautiful wines in optimal cooperation with nature to enable people to experience how beautiful & special life is.
They believe if you take good care of the people who make the wine, then you make better wine & we completely agree! This reflects their personal belief of nurturing the human spirit, in all its variety & glory. With better wine they create more special moments for the people who drink the wines.
Neleman organic wine is made without the use of pesticides & additives. A healthy & balanced soil yields a richer biodiversity that provides a richer breeding ground for tastier grapes. Taking good care of nature not only serves us with good wine today, but more importantly, with good wine for eternity!
Neleman's are careful with their unique grapes, vineyards & nature around them. Planting a tree for every 175 bottles that they produce & always choosing the most sustainable option in their business operations. They choose young artists, designers & architects to make the design of their labels & packaging. Serving nature & people the right attention.
The Neleman wines reflect the aromas & flavours of Casa Corones, in the Alforins Valley. Here the soil is white limestone & its surprising bright white surface gives its name to the entire region: Vall d’Albaida (The White One). Rain is absorbed like a sponge. When it dries up, the upper layers form a natural barrier, which restricts evaporation. This reserve of moisture contributes to the roots development.
The Chardonnay has been picked at an advanced point of maturation & the Muscat in an early state in order to give a subtle touch of flowers, white fruits & peach in the nose & a wide mouthfeel. Pale in colour with golden reflections. Middle-high aromatic intensity, fresh & exciting, with a long fruity finish. Very well balanced.
Drink this wine with raw and lightly cooked shellfish, grilled fish, fish pâtés, or vegetable terrines & pasta or risotto with spring vegetables.
