- CLOS DE L’OBAC
Clos de l’Obac is a wine of extraordinary power, structure and complexity. These characteristics are the result of the diversity of orientations and altitudes of seven vineyards (of a total of eight), which are located around the town of Gratallops and planted with vines of the grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, syrah, merlot and cariñena varieties. In this way, while the old cariñena and grenache vines (planted over 50 years ago) give this wine its unmistakable Priorat character, the other varieties assure its unique personality based on a balance of strength and finesse.
- DOLÇ DE L’OBAC
The eighth vineyard, called Camp dels Espills, is a small property where the grapes are left to over-ripen on their vines each year. Afterwards, when their fermentation comes to a natural halt, a residual natural sugar is preserved that makes Dolç de l’Obac a very suitable wine for aging in the bottle which is unique worldwide and which forms an especially appropriate accompaniment for blue cheeses, foie-gras and bitter chocolate, among other delicacies.
The special features of MISERERE (Mas d’en Bruno, 13th century) stem from the grapes of old vines –planted more than 40 years ago– of the local grenache and ull de llebre varieties and from grapes of the oldest Cabernet Sauvignon vines in El Priorat, masterfully combined with grapes of the merlot and cariñena varieties. Planted in one of the finest slate soils of the whole DOQ Priorat area, these five varieties give MISERERE the honour of being one of the most elegant wines apt for aging in the bottle to be found in the international market today, without sacrificing any of the great structure and strength that define all true PRIORAT wines.
At the lower end of Mas d’en Bruno, with a southern exposure, lies the little Kyrie vineyard, which contains vines of four varieties of classic white grapes of Catalonia: white grenache, macabeu, xarel•lo and muscat of Alexandria. The optimum ripening of the four varieties making up this white wine, together with a slight maceration of the grape skins, gives Kyrie an exceptional structure and complexity as well as an exquisite finesse. Aged in new casks of French oak, it offers excellent expectations of long life and good development in the bottle over a period of many years.
