Ready for the best rose around? This win from Partida Creus is a blend of vinyater, subirat parent, xarello, cartoixa vermell and sumoll and blended after fermentation. It has gorgeous floral notes with tangerine and papaya. It's like being on a big dipper, up down up down and then when you think it’s finished, kapow its back. Packs a punch!
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.
