The story of Partida Creus, a name which is now long since synonymous with uniquely and brightly vibrant Spanish natural wines, begins in 2001 and has actually Italian roots. That’s when Antonella Gerosa and Massimo Marchiori, both architects in Turin, decide to do a 360’ turn and change around their lives. Intent on producing pure, terroir-driven natural wines and having fallen in love with the location, they move to the remote village of Bonastre, in the Penedes region of Spain, near Tarragona. They purchase and refurbish and abandoned cottage and begin work on the cellar, while proceeding to lovely hunt for old and often abandoned parcels of local varieties such as Gra Gros, Macabeu, Xarel-lo and Vermell, saving from oblivion the rare varieties Garrut and Sumoll. Work in the vineyard follows the tenets of biodynamics and is just as natural and low intervention in the cellar, with only wild fermentations, no fining, filtration or hint of added SO2. These are wines of light, purity and assertive and vibrant character.
From the remote and enchanting village of Bonastre, in Catalunya’s Penedes region, comes this eminently drinkable, super-juicy but plenty deep natural white from this iconic Spanish winery. It’s 100% Vinyater, a rare and almost forgotten local variety, from a single vineyard of over 60 years of age on clay-limestone soils. It’s direct-pressed with the stems and of course naturally fermented, it rests on the lees for at least 3 months before bottling with no debasing fining, filtration or added SO2. Chamomile tea with white peaches, saffron and lightly caramelized cashews with thyme.
