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…

"A 60/40 blend of Garnacha and Cariñena from the vineyard that names the wine, the 2016 Planetes de Nin saw a similar vinification and aging as the 2017 I tasted next to it, so the differences found were only due to the vintage and the moment of harvest. This is a fresher vintage, with tantalizing aromas that are subtle and elegant, with notes of violets and red cherries, nuanced and ever-changing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied and nicely textured, with very fine tannins and fine chalky minerality. 9,108 bottles were filled in April 2017." 95+ pts, Luis Gutiérrez, WA
