Intensely savoury and saline with crisp acidity and moreish complexity. Tasty!!
BN or Blanco Natural is the entry level blend from Partida Creus, and is mainly Macabeu, with small amount of Cartoixa Vermell, a white grape with light pink skins which provides a lovely hue to the wine. Wild yeast fermented on skins, it’s intensely savoury and saline with crisp acidity and moreish complexity. So smashable.
Partida Creus are one of the most impressive natural producers in Spain. The winery was founded by Massimo Marchiori and Antonella Gerona, an Italian couple from Piedmont. Both architects who initially moved to Barcelona before settling in the Massís de Bonastre (Baix Penedés). Their focus is on organic viticulture and minimal intervention winemaking, and their vineyard holdings are mostly old vines of indigenous varieties.
