Partida Creus 'VN' Sparkling 2019
Producer: Partida Creus
Notes: Partida Creus Vinel·lo Blanco Ancestral is a sparkling wine made with White Grenache, Maccabeu, Moscatell, Vinyater, Xarello, Parsé and Parellada grapes from vineyards planted on clayey-calcareous soils.
Harvesting is done by hand. Once in the winery, the grapes are directly pressed and the resulting must ferments in stainless steel deposits with native yeasts and temperature control, 15-18ºC. The final fermentation takes place in the bottle. The ageing lasts 10 months in the bottle with its fine lees.
Partida Creus is a small traditional winery that produces a very limited quantity of wines made with organically grown grapes. The initiative was started in 2007 by a couple of Italian architects from the Piedmont region, Antonella Gerosa and Massimo Marchiori, who, seeking a complete reversal in their lives, relocated to the quiet village of Bonastre. There they refurbished an old agricultural building, converting it into a cellar, a project carried out with recycled materials.
