An excellent Priorat, faithful reflection of its terroir, coming from two adjacent plots, the first with young Garnacha vineyards located on terraces and the second of young Cariñenas in costers. Worked in ecological and biodynamic, in the most respectful way possible, we conquered by its honesty without artifice and by that natural acidity so successful that invites us to continue drinking. Fresh, intense, alive, long, a delight that has not gone unnoticed for who proves it.

Cherry red not very intense and shiny. Something closed at the beginning, when you open your nose, it displays charms that go through a range of “black” aromas (plums and blackberries, dark chocolate, olive, licorice, black tea) and balsamic notes.
Fine and fresh, with a good acidity and a certain depth, defined and precise, long and with good persistence. Consumption now and during the next three years under optimum conditions of conservation.

Ester Nin and Carles Ortiz joined efforts, estates and lives to create the Nin Ortiz family winery in 2008. Ester, a biologist and an oenologist, has spent much of her life training in organic and biodynamic agriculture. He came from a family of winegrowers in Penedés, he went to Priorat in 2001 to work on different projects, the most recognized with Daphne Glorian (Clos Erasmus) with which he obtained the 100 Parker points for two consecutive years , 2004 and 2005. For Ester the merit was double, since its personal Nit de Nin obtained 98 points in its first vintage, a fact that did not go unnoticed for the international critic.
Carles Ortiz, a builder and climber who after an injury leaves everything and sits in Porrera, buys in 1998 a farm called Los Planetes and plant from the beginning following the parameters of organic farming. His reputation as a healthy grape, eco and biodynamic, leads him to sell all his produce to wineries until, in 2008, he decides that the grapes stay at home.
