about the wine
the goal with gotes, (which means “droplets” in catalan) is freshness. organically farmed grapes are picked and fermented to show the minerality of the site and the fresher fruit profile of the wine. thus, the wine has good natural acidity, which makes it ideal for hearty foods and cellaring. tasting notes
“owner alfredo arribas started the gotes line in 2008 with the aim of showing that priorat wines can be fresh and delicate. this is delicious in its simplicity of flavors, with deep tones of strawberries and blackberries. imagine a barbecue accompanied by this refreshing wine; it’s the perfect company for summer days.” ~wine & spirits
about the producer
ALFREDO ARRIBAS PORTAL DEL PRIORAT
one of catalonia’s emerging superstars, alfredo arribas was a nationally renowned architect before shifting his focus to farming and winemaking fifteen years ago, and is known for making some of the most elegant wines in priorat and montsant – wines that are massive in terms of flavor and complexity, but diminutive in terms of alcohol levels and extraction…the opposite of the over ripe, over wooded priorats of old. alfredo arribas’ estate is composed of about 150 acres in priorat and 50 acres in southern montsant, many of these vines are on original rootstock and pushing 100 years in age. farming is organic/biodynamic, elevage is similarly natural, with native yeast, short macerations, minimal s02, and a “less is more” ethos.
