Portal del Priorat, 4 Gotes, Priorat, Catalonia, Spain, 2016
(at Wines From Spain Annual Tasting, 07 Mar 2019)
Former architect Alfredo Arribas has a state-of-the art winery, as you'd expect, but also some of the best wines in Priorat. From 80-year-old vines, this blends four Grenache grapes: black, white, grey and hairy (Garnacha Peluda) to give a deliciously quaffable unoaked red, full of juicy summer pudding berries, aromatic peach tones, dusty fruit tannins and crisp acidity. Serve slightly chilled.
