Winemaker Notes

This wine shows a brilliant red color with aromas of spring flowers and mineral with a red currant, cherry and blueberry bouquet. Slightly spicy notes accompanied by touches of espresso and smoke lead to an intense and lovely aftertaste with lingering smooth tannins and wonderful acidity.
Blend: 45% Carignan, 35% Grenache, 20% Syrah

Wine Enthusiast
Earthy plum and leather aromas fold in notes of prune, rubber and oak. This shows a firm grip, tomato-like acidity and a layer or two of complexity. Peppery, toasty plum, oak and spice flavors are integrated into a quality whole, while this Carignan-Garnacha blend finishes long, dry, peppery and elegant. Drink through 2020.

I have always appreciated the beauty and strength of the wines from Montsant. The 2015 Portal del Monstant Brunus—a blend of Carignan, Grenache, and Syrah—offers black fruit flavors that last long and firmly on the palate. The wine's generous finish pairs it nicely with grilled beef or lamb. (Tasted: August 4, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Portal del Montsant Winery Image
Founded in 2003 by internationally acclaimed architect Alfredo Arribas, Portal del Montsant is an ensemble of small vineyards - crus - of extraordinary quality, variability of soils (clayey, calcareous and sandy) orientations and altitudes. They constitute a unique, rich selection of old carignan lands, with very low production, in more than 20 ha. The vineyards are older than 65 years, with high densities of plantation, of bush vines and very narrowly spaced rows.

The climatology of the region (Masroig, Molar, Capçanes, Marçá) is strictly Mediterranean, with some continental characteristic for the vineyards placed in the northern part and the highest part of the D.O. (700-800 meters) in Cornudella.

The predominant varieties in the red wines from Portal del Montsant are: carignan, grenache and syrah. White grenache, and grey grenache for the white wines.

Surrounding the region of Priorat on all sides, Montsant shares much in common with its neighbor. Though its soils contain less schist than that of Priorat, its old Garnacha and Carinena vineyards produce wines of similar intensity and character.
