Product Description
Details

Like all Alfredo Arribas' wines, Gotes del Montsant was crafted following a philosophy of minimal intervention, both in the vineyard and in the cellar.

Made from an equal blend of Carignan and Grenache, the most interesting feature of this Spanish red wine from Montsant is that the 40-year-old vineyards are planted in limestone soils located at an altitude of 700 metres above sea level, a fact which brings it a remarkable freshness.

The grapes were partially fermented with the stems using indigenous yeasts. After that, the wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and in big oak vats. Finally, Gotes del Montsant 2017 was aged in French oak barrels for 9 months.

This Montsant red wine is nuanced and supple.

Additional Information
Appearance

The wine Gotes del Montsant has a medium-high cherry robe with bluish tinges and a purple rim.

Nose

A wine that greatly acknowledges aeration, this blend of Grenache and Carignan begins with a note of blackberries, slowly evolving into ripe plums, raspeberries and some flowery remembrances, seguing into hints of cocoa, vanilla and remembrances of balsam and white fruit. 

Palate

This wine by Alfredo Arribas is youthful and intense, showing the character of its great terroir. Delightfully rugged and authentic, with earthy notes and a very pure fruit. Tannins are lively and acidity is tense. This Montsant red winehas a medium-long finish with remembrances of dry earth, flowers and black fruit.

Our personal opinion

A wine that shows great purity and a deep terroir imprint, Gotes del Montsant 2017 pairs fabulously well with roasted meats and oily fishes.

Fluid, very easy to drink, deeply reminiscent of the Montsant fields, which are full of aromatic herbs. You don't feel the oak. Super good!!
