SP is made from Subirat Parent, a near-extinct grape variety that is related to Malvasia. Wild yeast fermented on skins, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Farmed organically, fermented with wild yeasts, and unfiltered, it’s light and vibrant, with grapefruit and lemon citrus flavours alongside lovely tannic grip.
Partida Creus are one of the most impressive natural producers in Spain. The winery was founded by Massimo Marchiori and Antonella Gerona, an Italian couple from Piedmont. Both architects who initially moved to Barcelona before settling in the Massís de Bonastre (Baix Penedés). Their focus is on organic viticulture and minimal intervention winemaking, and their vineyard holdings are mostly old vines of indigenous varieties.
