Col. Trossos, Sants Blanc, Garnacha Blanca, 2021, Montsant, 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 neighbor Montsant appelation.

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

“Tros” is the name given to the small terroir that one farmer is capable of working in a day. Trossos is a collection of old vines, small plots from the historic area of the Montsant appellation, always identifiable by their origin and by their diverse soils: sandy, calcareous or red clays. The Trossos monovarietal relationship brings together this great wealth, accentuated by a respectful work that gives the wines a classic approach starting from the tradition, obtaining vintages of great potential and complexity. Wines to be kept, highly representative of the origin’s value and the lineage of each variety.

40-60 year old vines planted at 320m above sea level on sandy, calcareous soils and farmed organically. Picked at the beginning of September.

Winemaking

Fermentation – A part with stems. Light press with 15 days in tank.

Aging – 1/2 in big puncheons and 1/2 in stainless steel tank.

Tasting Note

Trossos Sants Garnacha Blanca – synthesizes the most classic and austere expression of white Grenache. Pureness of the variety without any accompaniment. It shows the will to slender its generous mouth weight, starting from the same delicate viticulture work and the minimum expression of the use of lees. Fruitfulness with saline notes. A hyper-gastronomic style.

Goes well with

Best served with fish or shellfish. Would also compliment a creamy chicken Caeser salad.

Cellaring

3-5 years with careful cellaring.
