2013 Familia Nin-Ortiz, 'Planetes de Nin', Priorat

Ester Nin and Carles Ortiz met in 2007 at a biodynamic seminar in the province of Tarragona in Catalonia. Carles was a winegrower who had been selling organic grapes in Priorat for ten years and wanted to add extra value to his crop. By then, Ester, winemaker at Clos I Terrasses in Gratallops, followed biodynamic principles and had been making her own wine, the red Nit de Nin, since 2003. This first encounter eventually led them to bring together their vineyards, efforts and lives. Now they are a family with two children and a small company called Familia Nin-Ortiz, which manages 13 hectares of vines. The ground floor of their home is packed with wooden vats, amphorae and barrels. There isn’t a great deal of separation between their work and private life!

Why do we like it?

Planetes de Nin red is a blend of young Cariñena (Carignan) planted in terraced slopes with de-stemmed, amphorae-aged Garnacha also sourced from terraced vines. It is a powerful, structured red with bright acidity and minerality which benefits from some cellaring. Grapes are sourced from Mas d’en Caçador, a 112-year-old vineyard. The wine has a ripe aspect showing plums, juicy dark berries, cloves, liquorice, dark chocolate and an enchanting earthiness. The palate is really delicate, tannins are present but refined, and it leaves a very rounded impression. It is a subtle and charming wine, super-smooth with a great sensation of freshness, very impressive!
