The wine

Trossos Sants is the second white wine that Alfredo Arribas has offered us from his project in Montsant, wines with short production runs, made from small parcels with the technical assistance of Joan Asens. Both Trossos Sants and the excellent Tros Blanc are whites with great complexity and potential, and prove that this region is capable of coming up with some of the country’s best whites, whilst bringing pure enjoyment to lovers of white wine.

Trossos Sants is made predominantly from Garnacha Blanca grapes, with some emanating from the few old vines of this variety still in existence nowadays, with a small proportion (10%) of Garnacha Gris, planted at a height of 750 metres at Ciurana, which endows them with an extra dose of freshness and complexity. And, as to be expected, conveys the minerality of those sandy, calcareous and clay soils.

Very clear in appearance, a yellow colour with pale glints, the Trossos Sants nose is complex and fresh, with citrus and floral aromas, white fruits and that omnipresent and profound minerality which characterises all the wines in the Trossos range. Fresh, unctuous and silky on the palate, with good structure and maturity, the highlights are the fennel and fresh herb notes, pears, honeycomb and dried fruits and nuts, and concluding this ensemble is a long and stirring finish that invites repetition.

Alfredo Arribas

Alfredo Arribas

Alfredo Arribas began his career in the wine business in 2001, with the Portal del Priorat project, on the Clos del Portal estate. With his curiosity aroused regarding the potential of the neighbouring denomination of Montsant, he was inspired to operate these two regions in parallel, making two limited production lines called “Trossos”. Tros Blanc and Tros Negre were his first two cuvées, two single varietals of Garnacha Blanca and Garnacha Tinta, followed shortly after by...
