Clos de L’Obac

Priorat, Spain

https://www.obac.es

The wines from the Clos de l’Obac and Miserere properties and those from the Dolç de l’Obac and Kyrie vineyards are made by a blending method that is based on a system involving the same varieties and percentages of grapes each year, according to the four specific coupages that have been chosen for each of the four wines. The purpose of this method is to assure that each year the characteristics of our continental and Mediterranean climate will be those that define, by contrast, the personality and character of each wine, and not the characteristics of a random blending wine that would be used to adjust the vintage. With this system, regardless of the climatic variants, the challenge is to produce a great wine with each harvest, a wine that reflects the distinguishing traits of the year’s four seasons taken as a whole.

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.

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.
