Partida Creus is a project that has the very humble beginnings of the search of a more engaged life at a slower pace. Hailing from Piedmont,Massimo Marchiori and Antonella Gerosa found a small farm in Baixa Penedes that would allow them to return to an agricultural lifestyle that they grew up in, with an easy commute to Barcelona for their professional endevours.
Little did they know that a small abandoned vineyard on their property would propel them front and centre of the Biodynamic wine movement.
CX stands for Cartoixa Vermell (Cart-oocha Ver-Mel) a white skinned grape with pink flesh which is a clonal mutation of Xarel.lo part of the Cava holy trinity of grapes. Macerated on skins to extract that rose colour and all those delicious notes that Partida's wines are savoured for.
Herbacious, minerals, nectarines, oranges, musk and spices culminate in an enigmatic and energetic wine of poise and texture that is just so enjoyable. Come with an open mind and an empty glass as these bottles are scarce and don't last long once they are opened.
