Wine Shop - Vegetarian wines - Familia Nin Ortiz - 2017
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.
