Lemon Sole

Lemon Sole

Andy McLeod and his wife Ali were introduced to wine early by their parents. Andy’s father spent a lot of time in international travel, enjoying gourmet dinners served with great wines, and wanted his family to share the experience. This grew into a shared love of wine, and Andy’s career postings in California and France allowed them to experience great winemaking up close. To feed his love of all things wine, Andy undertook a winemaking course from UC Davis, and the whole family embarked on obtaining various WSET qualifications. When son Rob and his partner Elena discovered the wine potential of Terra Alta, it was an easy decision to join with their parents and sister Isobel to invest in some vibrant vineyards dripping with ripe Mediterranean grapes. A couple of years later the family decision was made to invest in a winery, and now the wines of Celler Alimara are starting to flow.

“Alimara” in catalan means “beacon”. The fire beacons were placed on the top of hills to rapidly pass signals between towns and populations, and a beacon was a good example of how Andy and Ali wanted to be seen, signalling the growing quality and variety emerging from this fascinating area. “Llumí” is the “match” that lights the fire and starts the flames rising. “El Senyal” is the “signal” which is sent out across the land carrying the message from the heart of Terra Alta.

What to drink with... lemon sole.

This is a delicate flavoured dish on its own, so the best match will be a light, fresh white wine, such as our South African Force Majeure Chenin Blanc or Barton Chenin Blanc. If you’re saucing up your Lemon Sole, then opt for our Chablis or one of our pinks: Domaine de la Jolive, Sancerre Rosé, or Domaine Saint Hilaire Rosé. What if you’re making fish goujons with a herby bread-crumbed crust? We recommend our Grüner Veltliner Heiligenstein, a Sauvignon Blanc: Domaine Beauséjour les Grenettes or our refreshing Villa Sparina Gavi di Gavi. If you’re adding cheese to your goujons, the Chablis might be a better partner.
