Location: This wine is from Baix Penedès (Maritime Penedès). Baix Penedès is characterized by its low altitude location next to the Mediterranean Sea and beneath the coastal mountain range. It is here that the climate is more consistent, Mediterranean, and warm.
Winemaking Notes: Whole cluster fermentation occurs in stainless steel with native yeast. Foot pigéage is used. SM matures in stainless steel for a year until bottling. The wine is bottled unfined, unfiltered, and without additives.
Tasting Notes: SM is one of the more Mediterranean wines Partida Creus produces. It displays juicy dark fruit that is ripe and grippy without losing the acidity. There is energy, freshness, and drinkability--characteristics that define all of the Partida Creus wines.
