Gotes Tinto 2013 Portal del Priorat, Priorat DOCa, Spain (organic)

A blend of 50% Grenache, 50% Carignan. If the Gotes Tinto is fine, fresh, floral and aromatic on the nose, it is surprisingly explosive on the palate! It grows and grows, with lots of volume and a very seductive sweetness and velvety texture. A fruit cocktail of raspberry, strawberry, black berries, both fresh and jammy, with a touch of citrus, stone fruit and hints of mango (from the Garnacha). Delicious, with tremendous balance and oh-so-supple tannins this is drinking beautifully now but will do so too over the next 5 years at least.

Food match: On its own or alongside paella, meat and rice dishes, duck a l'orange, roast chicken, roast suckling pig, tapas and mild curries; surprisingly versatile!

Production and Philosophy: In 2008, Gotes was added to Alfredo Arribas’ Portal del Priorat wine family, to highlight the possible freshness of Priorat wines; gotes meaning drops, like dewdrops.

The freshness of wines from the Priorat may surprise many because the region is located in a dry climate, with very low rainfall, but the singularity of the soils in this area, its steeply mountainous geography and the stiff breeze which blows up from the sea towards the foothills of the Sierra de Montsant along the River Siurana makes it possible.

In addition, there's the north and north-westerly orientation of some vineyards, such as the ones that give rise to this wine, the presence of vegetation and woodlands surrounding the estates, and an early grape harvest, at a medium point of ripeness.

Against certain Priorat examples of the heavy, monstrous and heavily-oaked, here the aim is refinement, Burgundian elegance, fruit ripeness without over-extraction, intense minerality and silky tannins.
