This wine, whose main grape variety is Grenache, is surprisingly well balanced in terms of potency and freshness. It entices you to discover its fruitness with touches of mineral flavors, all wrapped up in a soft silkiness. It is great way to introduce oneself to a good Priorat wine.
The red 2016 Artigas, a blend of 60% Garnacha, 30% Cariñena and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, feels a lot fresher and has better integrated oak than previous years. They used some (one-third) full clusters of Garnacha and Cariñena to ferment it with selected and indigenous yeasts, and it matured for 16 months in French oak barrels. It's very fruit-driven, juicy and fluid, with a mixture of berries, spices and Mediterranean herbs, aromatic, open and attractive. The palate is medium-bodied, with fine tannins and integrated acidity. Drinkable and pleasant.
