Partida Creus is the project of two Italians now in residence in the Tarragona region of Catalonia, just south of Barcelona. The idea of the project was to work with historical, often overlooked local varietals that in many cases were not recognised by the D.O. of the area: Penedès. Massimo and Antonella strategically went about buying up small plots of abandoned vineyards dotted around the area where mostly unknown varietals such as Garrut, Vinyater, Samsó and Queixal de Llop grew.
They sought to revitalise the vines and work out the best expression for these old varetals, working without chemicals in the vineyard and without selected yeasts or any other additions in the cellar. They make an impressively dizzying number of different wines, all of which are unified by a very distinctive house style - raw, viceral and pungent reds, and salty, turbid, expressive whites. As a couple they have an insatiable energy which really comes through in the wine.
Partida Creus VN (Vinel·lo) Ancestral is a sparkling wine made with the ancestral method, using Grenache, Ull de Perdiu, Sumoll, Queixal de Llop, Carignan, Garrut and Trepat, from vineyards planted on clayey-calcareous soils.
The harvest is performed by hand. Once the grapes arrive at the winery, they macerate with the stems, and after the stomping, the musts ferment one after another as they are added, lengthening the fermentation of the whole. For the fermentation they use native yeasts. It finishes the fermentation in the bottle, resting with its fine lees for a minimum of 10 months. Without added sulphur dioxide.
A light and fruity sparkling wine. On the nose, the aromas of fresh red fruit stand out, with notes of flowers and yeast. In the mouth, it is easy to drink with a long and refreshing finish.
