Partida Creus, CX Cartoixa Vermell Blanco 2019
2019 Vintage! Partida Creus continue on their quest of making outstanding natural wines, with the new 2019 CX. This vintage is particularly banging with saline, floral and lavender notes and strong orange rind note on the nose. Absolutely banging!
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.
