Purveyors of fine grape juice
2016 Partida Creus XL Ancestral penedès, spain
$60

The sparkling wines of Partida Creus are made in the traditional Ancestral manner.
The initial fermentation occurs in tank, the wine is bottled and the fermentation finishes in the bottle, trapping the carbon dioxide. The wines are then disgorged 10-12 months later.
This is 100% Xarello, directly pressed. It's like biting into a crisp green apple, the fresh, succulent juice dripping down your face with the gentle hint of waxy skin lingering in your mouth. This low alcohol beauty displays the freshness and acidity indicative of the wines from Partida Creus, yet shows hints of the savoury mouthfeel characteristic of the grape. 48 bottles came to Australia.
