Partida Creus ‘VY’

Partida Creus ‘VY’ – ladies and gentlefolk, prepare to have your thirst permanently quenched. Relent and rejoice in the startlingly fresh vibrancy of a wine that does not merely perform, but conducts. A conduit for newfound, ceaseless energy that propels one into a tarantismic dance. A baptismal cleanse that shall allow one to be born anew. Imbibe and invigorate your senses. An expression of yet another grape that lingered in the waste basket of memory, Vinyater Blanco, this is an astonishingly unique wine. Elegant notes of white Mediterranean fruits needle through a crisp quilt of Granny Smith apple and orchard pear. Delicate floral hints lull one into a false sense of security and then a raging sea of mineral, saline overtones and a biting acidity induce shock and awe. Goosebumps on goosebumps.

he Partida Creus project has been a labour of sustainable love since 2007 for Italian architects Antonella Gerosa and Massimo Marchiori. Having uprooted their lives in Piedmont, they sought agricultural solace in Bonastre, a whistle-stop village in the Baix Penedés region. The initiative was spearheaded by ecological yearnings from the outset; they renovated a dilapidated farmhouse with recycled materials, purchased vineyards that were almost, if not fully abandoned and began working towards reintegrating forgotten varietals into the viticultural zeitgeist. Some of these autochthonous varieties had been disqualified from the D.O altogether, most were verging on complete obsolescence. This was not solely a wine-making operation but a restoration of regional history, yielded by tradition and happy soils.

Partida Creus ‘VY’ – a lustful elixir, brimming with greedy minerality and a lip-smacking citrus structure. Quaffable affability that zig-zags across one’s palette and charges one’s entire form with exuberant stores of energy.
