Partida Creus Vinyater is a white wine without denomination of origin produced by Celler Partida Creus in Bonastre (BaixPenedés), 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 Vinyater is a natural wine made with Vinyater from a vineyard that is over 60 years old, located on clayey-calcareous soils.
Harvest is performed by hand. Once they arrive at the winery, the grapes are directly pressed without destemming in a pneumatic press. After the settling process, fermentation is carried out with native yeasts in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature of 15-18ºC. The malolactic fermentation is spontaneous. Before bottling, without added sulphur, it rests 3 months in stainless steel deposits with its fine lees.
Partida Creus Vinyater 2018 is an expressive, deep and mineral wine. On the nose, it is elegant, with aromas of Mediterranean white fruit and light notes of white flowers that stand out. In the mouth, it is voluminous, with a good body and a very long finish.
