Partida Creus Vinel·lo Blanco Ancestral is a sparkling wine without denomination of origin produced by the winery Celler Partida Creus in Bonastre (Baix Penedés), Tarragona.
Celler Partida Creus is a small winery created by Antonella Gerosa and Massimo Marchiori, in an industrial warehouse that was renovated 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 Vinel·lo Blanco Ancestral is a sparkling wine made with the ancestral method with White Grenache, Maccabeu, Moscatell, Vinyater, Xarello, Parsé and Parellada, from its own vineyards planted on clayey-calcareous soils.
Harvest is performed 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 Vinel·lo Blanco Ancestral is a sparkling, light and fruity wine. On the nose, the aromas of ripe white fruit stand out, with light notes of minerals and bakery. In the mouth, it is fresh, with elegant bubbles and very fresh.
