Gotes del Priorat

27.00

Gotes was the last to be incorporated into the Portal del Priorat’s wine family, the Alfredo Arribas project in this denomination, and was envisioned to highlight the freshness of Priorat wines; gotes (drops) of freshness, like dewdrops. Don’t expect to find in Gotes the more usual Priorat typicity, with profound maturity and intense minerality. Gotes reflects another type of Priorat wine, refined, in the French style (we mean ‘French’ as in Burgundy), with a fresh and floral profile. The typicity of Gotes is rooted in the countryside, in its notes of aromatic plants, and in that delightful warmth, because although fresh it is Mediterranean. Another special feature of Gotes is the polish and attention to detail it emits; it’s an elegant wine; it has clearly been crafted by experts. If Gotes is refined on the nose, it’s positively explosive on the palate! It grows and grows, with lots of volume and a very seductive sweetness and velvety texture. Gotes is fruit, but a very varied fruit cocktail: red fruits, black fruits, both fresh and jammy, the odd juicy stone fruit like mango (the Garnacha always leaves its mark) and fresh grapes that provide a citrusy touch. Ideal with dishes of a upper middle power taste. Will be excellent with a salad of figs and duck ham with Parmesan shavings. It will also be great taking with red meats, duck breast grilled or thigh kid with cider and soft alioli.
