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. They sought to revitalise the vines and work out the best expression for these old varetals, working without chemicals in the vineyard and without selected yeasts or any other additions in the cellar. They make an impressively dizzying number of different wines, all of which are unified by a very distinctive house style - raw, viceral and pungent reds, and salty, turbid, expressive whites. As a couple they have an insatiable energy which really comes through in the wine.
TN Tinto Natural by Partida Creus is a fresh and fruity red wine that comes from a blend of Tempranillo, Sumoll, Bobal. Spontaneous fermentation with only indigenous steel yeasts with 4 days maceration followed by 10 months aging in large old wooden barrels. It is not filtered, clarified and without the addition of sulfur dioxide before being bottled.
"Wonderful mix of small red berries, then wild flowers and cut grass, super freshness and juiciness on the palate, very pleasant and very balanced. Drinking this wine will be a real fun...get involved!!!"
