Quick Overview

This wine is a blend of 45% Carignan, 35% Grenache, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from soils of Llicorella. It was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. The nose is dark and sweet with ripe fruit which has a floral backing and hints of blueberry. In the mouth there is good fruit which is both red and blue with well-integrated acidity, powdery texture, and good depth of flavour. The flavours expand in the middle then become ripe and minerally.

Details

What happens when an architect turns vintner? In the case of Spanish architect Alfredo Arribas, the move spawned not just one winery but two—both infused with artistry from the wine itself down to illustrated labels, and of course the beautifully modern buildings housing them too. Based in the emerging wine-making regions of Priorat and the neighbouring Montsant, Arribas' project has been quietly breathing new life into the region starting in 2001 when he established Portal del Priorat.

After restoring the neglected terraced plots called closters, they were planted with clones of traditional grapes (Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah), as well as a few experimental varieties, which are all grown organically. Methods include densely planting the vines according the soil's composition (mostly slate) and the topography The resulting wines bear witness to their creator's ingenuity, winning praise from oenophiles for their lightness while still rich with complex flavour notes.
