Partida Creus is the project of two Italians now in residence in the Tarragona region of Catalonia, just south of Barcelona. The idea of the project was to work with historical, often overlooked local varietals that in many cases were not recognised by the D.O. of the area: Penedès. Massimo and Antonella strategically went about buying up small plots of abandoned vineyards dotted around the area where mostly unknown varietals such as Garrut, Vinyater, Samsó and Queixal de Llop grew.

SK is fragrant Moscatel given the Partida treatment. Spontaneous fermentation and aging in steel. The aromatics really draw you in – it’s that tangerine blossom, lime leaf, jasmine sort of territory, which is nicely balanced by bitterness in the tailnote. Still with their trademark wild edges, but not sacrificing any of this grape’s seductive qualities.
