Alfredo Arribas, VinsNus, inStabile, Brisat, “In-Albis”, 2021, Garnacha Blanca, Macabeo, Cartoixà, Muscat, Priorat, Catalonia, Spain

Producer Profile

Alfredo Arribas a multidisciplinary architect, has developed most of his renowned international career in multiple world locations. Recently, more of his works have taken place in his birth town, Barcelona.

In 2001, Alfredo started his adventure in the wine world, after acquiring the estate Clos del Portal, in Priorat, where he centres his activity. In parallel, he develops a recovery task of a bunch of old vines – Trossos – in the neighbour Montsant appellation.

Perfectionist and empirical at the same time, Alfredo associates elaboration to creativity. Bringing forth vinifications with substantial notes and accents, he proposes sensible Priorats.

The respect and curiosity for different origins and terroirs creates in his work the proliferation of references, itineraries through the territory, with the explicit duality between search/discovery… in the spectrum of his wines.

Viticulture

InStabiles are free wines,  they resign to vintage continuity and in particular to that of their  origins. They are exercises based in the art of “assemblage”, bringing together the purest cellar work – Wine Craftmanship.

Winemaking

“Brisat” meaning skin contact – this wine spends a longer time of its skins (18 days). Made from a wide range of mediterranean varieties: Garnacha Blanca, Macabeo, Cartoixà and Muscat. Spontaneous fermentation and a slow maceration, 50% with whole bunch and 50% destemmed, done in amphoras and different tanks. Ageing in horizontal eggs made of white gres.

Wines capable of evoking an ancestral character and at the same time tuning in with the most sensible and advanced gastronomy.

Tasting Note

A natural wine in every sense of the word. Aromas of tropical fruit and green mango. Layers of quince, pithy grapefruit, orange and mandarin fill the palate and roasted cashew. Finishes with real umami character and salinity.

Goes well with

Grapefruit and goats cheese salad.

Cellaring

3-6 years with careful cellaring.
