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.
