Família Nin-Ortiz "Planetes de Nin" Priorat, Catalonia, Spain 2018
A blend of Garnatxa Negre (Garnacha) and Carinyena (Carignan).
"Planetes" comes from Finca Les Planetes, where Carles Ortiz purchased and renovated a northeast-facing plot of vines on schist soils on the outskirts of the village of Porrera. The grapes are harvested by hand, partially destemmed (30%), fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in foudre and amphorae.
The freshness and brightness of Planetes is a testament to the relatively cooler, northeast-facing aspect of the site as well as the hands-off approach that Carles and Ester take in the cellar.
