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.

THE WINERY

In 1979 Carles Pastrana and Mariona Jarque recovered the family winemaking tradition and started off on a long adventure aimed to rescue the old Carthusian wines in the heart of the lands that were once under the dominion of the priors of Scala Dei, a monastery located in the Catalan region of El Priorat. Carles and Mariona created the properties of Clos de l’Obac and Miserere, replanting vines along the banks of the river Siurana in the southern pre-coastal area of Catalonia, and established the Clos de l’Obac Winery. They began to make their first wines in 1989, reaching an important milestone when the World Wine Guide declared CLOS DE L’OBAC to be one of the world’s 150 best wines.

GEOGRAPHY

Located in the south of Catalonia between the mountains of the coastal and pre-coastal ranges, El Priorat is a land of hills and slopes formed by rich slate substrates, situated along both banks of the river Siurana and facing the four points of the compass, with an average altitude of 350 meters. In this harsh terrain, crops benefit from an extraordinarily rich soil and a microclimate that is formed by the imposing Montsant mountains, a natural barrier of 1,166 meters in height that regulates the temperature of the region, sheltering it from the inclement weather which arrives from the north. The combination of all these factors –climate, mountains and soil (slate)– provide some clearly distinctive organoleptic characteristics that give Priorat wine the unique personality acknowledged by enologists and sommeliers from around the world.

LANDSCAPE

Consequently, the landscape here shelters pines, holm oaks, Mediterranean hackberries, poplars, rosemary, thyme, blackberry, savory, grapevines, almond, fig and carob trees and many other species of plants , and it is inhabited by eagles, roe deer, rabbits, partridges, crows, ocellated lizards and wild boar, all of which combine to form a countryside of unique beauty and spirituality.

TERRAIN

On deciding to create a Priorat wine, one of the most exciting aspects is to consider the many factors that will come to give the wine its specific characteristics, including the grape varieties that are used, the characteristics and types of slate in the soil where the vines are planted, the planting system, the orientation of the vines and the cultivation method that is applied, in addition to other aspects. Accordingly, the irregular terrain of the slate hills is one of the determining factors.

VINEYARDS

The Clos de l’Obac and Miserere wines are made from the grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, syrah, merlot, ull de llebre and samsó (cariñena) varieties, while white grenache, macabeu, xarel•lo and muscat of Alexandria are used to make Kyrie white wine.

CULTIVATION

Old gobelet plantings of the grenache, samsó and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties from fifty to eighty years ago have been preserved. The rest of the vines have an average age of twenty-five years and are trained or re-trained by the Royat double cordon (two-armed) trellising system, which allows better control of production, better plant health and, consequently, a more efficient balance of production.

Clos de l´Obac

In the end of the 1970s,  Carles Pastrana and Mariona Jarque embarked on their life adventure, devoting their professional and family future to the project of recovering the wines of El Priorat and of making their wines internationally known. Carles and Mariona created the properties of Clos de l’Obac and Miserere, replanting vines along the banks of the river Siurana in the southern pre-coastal area of Catalonia, and established the Clos de l’Obac Winery.

Their hard work payed off an in 1993, the World Wine Guide, considered Clos de l’Obac as a one of the top 150 wines of the world.

Thirty years later, together with their two children, Guillem and Iona –who represent the essential future of this story–, they have consolidated a project that is now known and acknowledged around the world.
