A pet-nat mead - a brand new cuvee to the Partida Creus lineup.
Partida Creus makes wine from dozens of indigenous grape varieties grown on old-vines in the region. Their yields are low; the flavour concentration and complexity high.
All of the vineyards are cared for organically (implementing some biodynamic practices), by hand; and, with the help of their trusty horse and donkey.
In the cellar, their intentionally hands-off approach continues. The wines are fermented with native yeasts and are never fined, filtered or sulphured.
