Partida Creus, BB Bobal 2019
2019 Vintage! Partida Creus's BB is a super dark cherry red colour whilst on the nose you're treated to a naughty pairing of candy, sweet flowers, fresh fruit, violet and thyme. Incredibly drinkable with a nice line of acidity and sour cherry, ripe plum, black pepper notes with a little saline touch on the finish. Serve chilled.
Partida Creus is the project from two Italians (Massimo and Antonella) who now produce just south of Barcelona in the Tarragona region. The thought process of the PC project was to work with historical and forgotten local varietals that in many cases were not recognised by the D.O. of the area: Penedès. The pair worked tirelessly for years buying up tiny plots of abandoned vineyards scattered around the area where mostly unknown varietals such as Garrut, Vinyater, Samsó and Queixal de Llop grew. The project has constantly produced banger after banger, all of which have a very distinctive house style - raw, natural and pungent reds, and funky, fresh, expressive whites.
