This wine is 100% cartoixa vermell a that has spent 90 days on skins. Curious spices and inviting citrus fruits, particularly pink ones. Like last year, its slippery textured with gingery and galangal undertones, feathery phenolics, enticing and fresh.
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.
