Blanco Natural or BN for short is pretty much the basic entry-level white in PC's portfolio. Predominently Macabeo, it also has a small amount of Cartoixa Vermell, a white grape with blushed pink skins that gives the BN a peachy twang thanks to a very brief bit of skin maceration. The juice is briny, with savoury aromas of hay that might sound disgusting but all works in tandem to produce a fricking awesome wine.
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.
