VinsNus, SiurAlta, Orange, Garnacha Blanca, Cariñena Blanca, Malvasia, 2022, 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

Grown at 820m above sea level. The vineyards are located in the highest points of Gritella and Collet blanc, with various soils and orientations.

The elevated freshness of the SiurAltas allow (with non-interventionist) the winemaking to work naturally, without adding any sulphites or other chemical substances. Deep wines, rich in spices, delicate and different to most references that our oenological memory can treasure. Wines in which acidity becomes the backbone, substituting the traditional tannic structure. Pure, artisan wines, very close to their origins. Altitude wines, with ability to age.

Winemaking

SiurAlta Orange is an empirical wine: the winemaking thesis becomes the most important, above the common goal of reflecting a wine’s origin (in this case various white varieties). Harvested early, with the intention of compensating the acidity loss caused by long macerations and further must fermentation and skin contact that always happens in small amphoras (for 60 days).

Tasting Note

Beautiful aromas of mandarin and orange blossom followed by stone fruit (peach, nectarine & apricot) on the palate.  Not as pithy (skin contact tannins) as you might imagine, just a touch of orange rind character and super easy drinking, just lush!

Goes well with

Moroccan Chicken Tagine.

Cellaring

3-5 years with careful cellaring.
