Extremely rare and impressive Alfredo Arribas large formats

Extremely rare and impressive Alfredo Arribas large formats

We are very pleased to have again been offered a selection in large bottles of the brilliant wines made by Alfredo Arribas, owner and winemaker at Portal del Priorat and a man who is in the forefront of the Priorat renaissance, producing wines of complexity and elegance.

These are wines that are made in tiny quantities and therefore we are extremely lucky to have been offered a selection in large formats - from magnums to double magnums and 500cl bottles and in a number of vintages dating back to 2007.

These seriously impressive bottles will all come in individual cardboard cases specifically designed for them and would make lovely gifts. Larger formats are also ideal for keeping over the longterm as they develop more slowly, and last but not least, let's not forget how spectacular they lookon the dinner table!

We will be shipping from Priorat for arrival before Christmas.


Negre de Negres, Priorat

Made from Grenache, Carignan and Syrah. The Grenache is the core of this wine, with small amounts of the other grapes added to increase its complexity. Silky and balanced, it's a superb introduction to the wines of Priorat.

Somni, Priorat

Mainly made from Carignan, with some Syrah, the Somni aims for maximum concentration in both colour and density. It is a big, rich, ripe wine that ages very well indeed

Tros de Clos, Priorat

100% Carignan from 100 year old vines in a plot of only one hectare and the pinnacle of Alfredo's Priorat collection, this is an incredible wine. It is is complex, subtle, elegant and supremely enjoyable. I can only imagine that this would be utterly magnificent out of large bottles.

Tros Blanc, Montsant

Made from 100% Grenache Blanc harvested from 70-80 year old vines, this is a wonderful wine. Alfredo believes this is perhaps the best white wine being made in Spain at the moment and I am inclined to agree. Decant before drinking it slowly and watch it unfold in the glass, revealing more complexity and nuances as it opens up.

Tros Negre, Montsant

Alfredo's top Monsant cuvee and one of the best wines from the region. Made from a sinlge-vineyard planted with 95 year old, pre-phylloxera vines, this is powerful, elegant and made in tiny quantities. 100% Grenache.
