Ester Nin's day job is being ‘the right hand’ of Daphne Glorian of Clos I Terrasses. Ester bought a tiny parcel (less than
3 acres) of old vines on the steepest hillside slopes above the village of Porrera. Like Clos Erasmus, Nit de Nin is made
using biodynamic techniques. The vineyards are even older (around 80-100 years old) and the vineyard is one of the
highest in Priorat. The soils are the famous licorella schist. Around 3 barrels are made each year from 60% Garnacha and
40% Carignan. The Planetes is from an small parcel of vines near the Nit de Nin vineyard, these Garnacha and
Carignan vines are also biodynamically farmed on licorella soil.
Organic & Biodynamic Wines
With minimal intervention and low sulphur – the cornerstones of any good organic winemaker – critics argue you can actually taste this living environment, the wine’s ‘terroir’. Biodynamic winemaking goes beyond organics, it's a holistic approach to farming. Following the biodynamic calendar vineyard tasks will only occur on stated days and only natural products will be used.
