A Spanish white wines which ranks, without doubt, among the best produced in the DOQ Priorat, the grapes come from a single vineyard with slate soils located on the margins of the Siurana river.
Harvested at their optimal ripening point, the grapes were destemmed, macerated with the skins in stainless steel tanks for 12 hours, and subsequently transferred into new French oak barrels. After that, this Crianza white wine was fermented and aged for 5 months.
Naturally stabilized by the cold of winter, Kyrie 2015 was fined with egg whites before being bottled.
