Huber also follows the credo "infusion instead of extraction" and thus wants to counteract the further release of colour, extract, tannin and intensity. The hot, dry Priorat should thus be brought to more finesse and the already warm, powerful wines dressed with more freshness and finesse.

Info

Since its foundation, the winery has been in a constant state of change. For some years, Dominik Huber has been pursuing the vision to work completely without wood in the cellar. The hot, dry Priorat should thus be brought to more finesse and the already warm, powerful wines should be dressed with more freshness and finesse. The alcohol content of 13,5% Vol. is prescribed by the D.O. for a wine with designation of origin without hin. In 2017, the Carignan from the Arbossar site is 100% from the cement tank. Huber also follows the credo of "infusion rather than extraction", aiming to counteract the further release of colour, extract, tannin and intensity. The grapes come from 108-year-old vines and undergo whole cluster pressing after an early but physiologically ripe harvest. "Grappes entieres" is something Huber learned and adopted for himself in earlier years during his time with Tom Lubbe of Matassa. Oxidation is not really desired in the basket press. Fermentation lasts about 10 days before pressing with little pressure. Dominik Huber has a "strong vision of what Priorat should taste like". He and his team are always among the very first to harvest there, for which they were also ridiculed for a long time. However, today's success speaks for them and the path they have chosen.

Color

Bright purple, bluish-violet reflections

Nose

The nose clearly shows a cool, elegant Carignan from the slate soil. Dark berry fruits shine with a tart chocolate coating. A subtle green herbal note complements these bittersweet memories of fine patisserie. However, a bit of potting soil, beetroot and violets quickly make you drift towards floristry and vegetable patch. White and black pepper and juniper add decent character and spice. A little cedar, blackberry leaves and liquorice provide a real exciting, profound moment of a timeless, avant-garde wine.

Palate

Berry fruits from dark to light flow into a perfectly balanced flow that bundles fruit and extract sweetness as well as a finely chiselled acidity. With a truly brilliantly integrated bitter tone, the Arbossar is already a hell of a lot of fun at such a young age and makes you want more. This is full of depth and diversity. Far from dark fruit, lush sweetness and alcoholic seduction. The Arbossar delivers a very adult drinking pleasure of a Priorat for advanced.
