The Arbossar 2019 is a 100% Carignan wine from Torroja del Priorat. The grapes come from 90-year-old vines grown on black slate and granite. The wine has a dark purple colour with violet reflections and aromas of dark fruits, flowers and spices. On the tongue it unfolds powerfully with fine-grained tannins and salty minerality. This impressive wine has great ageing potential and goes well with dishes such as crispy tartelette with wild mushrooms, rack of lamb or caramelised beetroot with smoked wild boar ham and thyme. Be sure to decant and serve in a large glass.

Info about the wine

100 % Carignan from Torroja del Priorat from 90 year old vines grown at 350-400 metres on black slate and granite. Whole cluster pressing, fermentation and ageing in cement tanks.


Dark purple with clear violet reflections.


The 2019 Arbossar impresses with lots of refreshing dark fruit as well as dark flowers and leaves reminiscent of violets, violet pastilles, cassis leaf and beetroot. In addition to elderberries, sour cherries and sloe, rosemary, juniper and aromas of candied black olives are clearly present. These aromas are carried by the black Licorella slate and a distinctive use of wood adapted to the fullness of the wine. 100 per cent Cariñena still youthful and impetuous, but with promising ageing potential.


On the tongue, it unfolds powerfully with lots of fruit and herbal spice. The tannins are still youthful, but super fine-grained. We get the impression that the black slate is immediately on our tongues, paired with salty minerality. One is immediately transported to the rough, rugged and at the same time impressively beautiful landscape of the Priorat. Impressive, however, is also a certain gentleness that reveals itself on the palate after sufficient aeration and ends in a pleasantly demanding finish. An impressive wine that can still mature for decades to reveal itself with elegance and Burgundian finesse after a few years.

If you want to enjoy it at this stage, you should decant it and serve it in a large glass.
