AA stands for Anonimo Ancestral. This is a blend of xarello, parellada, moscatel and ull de llebre (tempranillo in Catalan). This highly aromatic red white blend is a mix of oranges, red currants, morello and wild flowers. Mouth filling freshness, orange sherbet, darts of techno acid, skinsy and savoury. Mind boggling.
Partida Creus is a winemaking team made up of Massimo and Antonella, originally from Piedmonte, Italy. Now based in the Tarragona region of Catalonia, the idea of the project was to work with historical, often overlooked local varietals that in many cases were not recognised by the D.O. of the area: Penedès. This pair sought to buy and restore old vineyards, working with very expressive varietals, which they make into an impressively dizzying number of different wines.
