Old school Pet Nat from one of the pioneers in Natural Winemaking, Partida Creus. Made from 100% Xarel-lo this is a beautifully made Natural Sparkling Wine with deep minerality and soft but pronounced fruit salad aromas. Partida wines can at times air on the side of funky but this ones clean, elegant and beautifully crafted.
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.
