Partida Creus Xarel·lo Ancestral is a sparkling wine without denomination of origin produced by the winery Celler Partida Creus in Bonastre (Baix Penedés), Tarragona.
Celler Partida de Creus is a small winery designed by Antonella Gerosa and Massimo Marchiori in an industrial warehouse that was remodelled with recycled materials. Partners and producers of Slow Food apply this philosophy to the vineyard, respecting nature to the fullest and recovering old traditions in the lands they cultivate.
Celler Partida de Creus has small plots with narrow rows of vines, thus avoiding invasive mechanical work. This, alongside the absence of chemical treatments, emphasizing biodynamic cycles and moon phases, result in a very limited production of grapes of an excellent biological quality.
Partida Creus Xarel·lo Ancestral is a sparkling wine made with the ancestral method, using Xarello from their vineyards planted on clayey-calcareous soils.
Harvest is performed by hand. Once the grapes arrive at the winery and after direct pressing, they ferment in stainless steel deposits with native yeasts. It finishes the fermentation in the bottle, resting with its fine lees for a minimum of 10 months. Without added sulphur dioxide.
