Description

Partida Creus CX 2020

Partida Creus CX is an incredibly vibrant wine made from the rare Cartoixa Vermell grape. Heady nose with exotic aromas of citrus and spice. Slightly tart and funky on the palate. Pink grapefruit and peach flavours with dashes of ginger spice and a good saline minerality. Closes in a long finish. 

Fun Fact: Perfect for summer afternoons in the garden.

100% Cartoixa Vermell. The fruit for this wine comes from an uncertified organic and biodynamic vineyard with clay and limestone soils. The average age of the vines are 35 years old.

Hand harvesting and total destemming of the fruit. 90 days maceration on skins then pressing in pneumatic press. Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel at 15-18°C using low intervention methods. Ages for 7 months in stainless steel. No filtering or fining.
