Product Description
Details

Produced by the Portal del Priorat winery, run by Alfredo Arribas, Gotes del Priotat conveys the freshest, more accessible side of famed Priorat.

A blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah, this Spanish red wine is made from vines grown in north-orientated plots, composed of slate soils and with moderate sun exposure.

Harvested by hand at their optimal ripening time, the grapes were partially destemmed and fermented using indigenous yeasts. A portion of the wine was fermented in big old wooden vats, and the rest in stainless steel tanks.

Finally, this red wine from Priorat was aged for 9 months in French oak barrels.

Aerate Gotes del Priorat 2017 30 minutes before drinking.

Appearance

The red wine Gotes del Priorat has an intense cherry colour with a violet rim.

Nose

It shows the light, nicely understated touch typical of Alfredo Arribas' wines. Fresh aromas of cherries, violets and underbrush, nicely combined with some creamy notes and suggestions of toast, liquorice and mineral. This wine from Portal del Priorat is subtle and enticing.

Palate

Fresh and straightforward, showing character but also elegance. This Priorat red wine is youthful and inviting. Remembrances of red berries, spices, Mediterranean garrigue, earth and blue flowers. Ripe tannins, good acidity and a long, balsamic finish.

Our personal opinion

The wine Gotes del Priorat 2017 is really inviting. A great start for those who want to get to know Priorat.

An understated Priorat oriented towards subtlety and drinkability. Gentle, delicate mineral. Since 2010, I've drunk each and every vintage.
