WINE OF THE DAY 12/11/15 Les Mines Priorat $19.99

December 11, 2015

Gran Clos epitomizes the winemaking revolution that has seized hold of the Priorat in the past 15 years and propelled it into the spotlight. Founded in 1995, this 75-acre property was purchased in 2002 by John Hunt, an international entrepreneur and owner of Oriel Wines. Winemaking is under the supervision of the talented young winemaker Josep Angel Mestre. The wines of Gran Clos grace the wine lists of many of Spain’s and the world’s most prestigious restaurants.

Vinification
The grapes were fermented for 8-10 days at 81°F with a post-fermentation maceration of 8-10 days at a temperature of 68 - 72°F. The wine is then matured for 12 months in French oak barrels, fined with egg whites and aged in the bottle for one year.
