Partida Creus Xarel·lo is a white 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 is a natural wine made from Xarello from their old vineyards planted on clayey-calcareous soils.
Harvest is performed by hand. When the grapes arrive at the winery, after direct pressing without destemming in a pneumatic press and after a settling process, they ferment with native yeasts in stainless steel deposits. It is bottled without added sulphur dioxide, after standing for three months in deposits with their fine lees.
Partida Creus Xarel·lo is a profiled, complex and deep wine. On the nose, the ripe white fruit does not cover the flowery notes on the mineral background. In the mouth, it is voluminous and structured, with a final freshness that is unusual in wines from this area.
