Characteristics of 4 Gotes

4 Gotes is a red wine made by the winery Alfredo Arribas in Bellmunt del Priorat (Tarragona), D.O.Q, Priorat.

 

Alfredo Arribas is a renown architect from Barcelona. In 2001, he decided to start a new career in the winemaking industry. Surrounded by a great team, the products he makes are constantly given the unanimous applause from the critique.

His winery, Clos del Portal is located between El Lloar and Bellmunt del Priorat. Currently, Alfredo Arribas produced wine with D.O. Montsant and D.O.Q Priorat, seeking to express in his wines the expression of the terroir, marked by the austere climate of the area.

The winery has 40 small plots, all of their own, of which 14 are vineyards. Half of them are planted on terraces, and the other half on hillsides. The soils are the typical ones of Priorat, licorella (slate).

 

4 Gotes is a wine made from Black Grenache, Downy Grenache, Garnacha Tintorera (Alicante Bouschet) and Grey Grenache from their own vineyards.

The grapes are manually harvested and placed in 16-kg boxes. When they arrive at the winery, 50% of the grapes go through skin-contact maceration, and the other 50% through carbonic maceration for 1 to 2 weeks. After the fermentation ends, the wine rests for a 6months in stainless steel and cement deposits.       

 

4 Gotes is a juicy, fresh and easy to drink wine, where the main character is the ripe red fruits. In this wine, Alfredo Arribas is able to preserve the intensity of the wines from Priorat, with an unusual freshness for the area.

Tasting notes 4 Gotes

The Priorat region was marked by heavy drought and heat. Following an autumn and winter with normal temperatures and rainfall, spring began with an abnormal drought and high temperatures. Flowering was successful, occurring before the expected date, but the rains didn’t come. During the summer the high temperatures continued, and the lack of rainfall resulted in the earliest harvest in history. In general, the wines of this vintage are noted for their concentration, being less pronounced in wines produced with local varieties such as Grenache or Cariñena. Perfect for enjoying young, and with a medium aging capacity.
We present the new 2016 vintage, characterised by the wettest winterin the last five years. Not only did it rain in winter, but there was also wet weather up until summer arrived, especially inMarch and April. In summer everything changed, and it was one of the driest inhistory, with only 28 litres being recorded between July and October.If we compare the temperatures in 2012 and 2016, the 2016 crophad to endure a much colder winter than in 2012, which turned outto be positive, since the frost cleared the fields ofvine parasites. During the spring, lower temperaturesthan in 2012 were also recorded.Due to all these climatic conditions there was a delay insprouting, which began on March 28th, and which led to a delayin flowering of between three and four weeks.Once the summer arrived, the Priorat got all the luck, sincethe rains disappeared, while in the rest of Europethey were incessant. It was something that nobody expected considering thewinter we’d had. Taking into account the delay insprouting, the harvest started around mid-October on some ofthe estates.Obtaining fresh wines with an extraordinary acidity is dueto this long duration of the grape in the strain that has so characterisedthis vintage.
The vintage began in autumn in the best possible way, with good rainfalls that would fill the water reserves for optimal growth development. Winter was characterised by low temperatures and even snow covered some areas of Priorat. March started wet and cold, which delayed the budding of the vines. In mid-May, flowering was encouraged and was followed by a somewhat unstable June with several rainfalls.
