From vineyards next to the hillside village of Porrera, Ester and Carlos make their own wines, also based on very old vine Garnacha but from even more elevated vineyards than I Terrasses that are north and east facing ensuring a freshness and acidity to balance the considerable weight of intensely ripe, spicy fruit. The wines here (biodynamic and whole-bunch fermented in the case of the Grand vin) reek of terroir and ancient soils, with that heady musk that make you think more of Etna or Barolo or even Chambertin…

The amazing 2015 Planetes de Nin is a young-vine blend of Garnacha and Cariñena that fermented in 3,200-liter French oak vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in a 3,000-liter oak vat for some 18 months. It starts as a closed and serious red, with great detail, poise and elegance, incredibly fresh for the conditions of the year, challenging the 2014 with freshness. It's fresh and mineral, elegant and perfumed, floral and nicely balanced on the palate. This has to be the finest Planetes to date. Bravo! 9,070 bottles were filled in April 2017.95/100 Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate
