Architects Massimo Marchiori and Antonella Gerosa, originally from Piemonte, began making wine and restoring ancient vineyards in the Massís de Bonastre in 2000, and today their estate, Partida Creus (named after the ancient crosses that marked the boundary lines between vineyard parcels) has become one of the most sought-after and celebrated natural wineries in Catalonia. No chemicals are employed in the vineyards and only naturally occurring yeasts are used. Focusing on single-varietal bottling of indigenous grape varieties like Trepat, Garrut, Moscatel and Cartoixa Vermell, they make small quantities of superb wines in numerous different bottlings, all unified by a distinctive house style - raw, visceral reds and briny, savoury whites. VN (Vinel.Lo) is a blend of seven grape varietals: Trepat, Sumoll, Garrut, Queixal de Llop, Ull de Perdiu, Garnacha, and Samsó and is vibrant and fresh. A chillable summer red.
A light ruby-red in colour. Aromas of summer red fruits, red cherries and sweet spices. On the palate, light and clean with a zippy acidity and mouth-watering juiciness. The finish is crisp making this a great food wine with bacalla gratinat (grilled cod with aioli), monkfish soup with clams and potatoes or a simple plate of mussels and shrimps.
