Ester Nin and Carles Ortiz are the proud owners of this tiny wine estate with vineyards in Porrera and Torroja and in Gratallops. Ester is an oenologist and biologist originally from the upper part of the Penedès, in El Pla de Manlleu. Carles is responsible for the vineyard, along with his mules Negret and Max. Ester is best known for her work as an oenologist for Clos Erasmus in Gratallops and for NUN, the top white wine from Enric Soler in the Penedès, of which she vinified the first vintages. In all her projects she resolutely opts for biodynamics. The Planetes: lies on a terrain llicorella with a lot of iron oxide, called ferral, much harder than ordinary llicorella. The new vineyards (between 5 and 13 years old) are planted on terraces and part on old 'costers' (Carinyena), visible from the road between Falset and Porrera.
The single-vineyard red 2020 Nit de Nin La Coma d'en Romeu is a wine produced from one of the most beautiful vineyards in the Priorat. It is an area of 11 HA containing a vineyard of only 1.5 hectares of 60 year old Garnacha, the rest being olive, hazelnut and fruit trees; it is a spectacular amphitheater at 325 meters high and has one of the oldest soils in Priorat. The bunches were hand-picked, cooled for 24 hours at -4 degrees Celsius, any dried grapes removed and trampled underfoot in an oak barrel where it fermented with natural yeasts. It went through malolactic aging and maturation in used oak barrels of 225, 300 and 600 liters until it was bottled in June 2020. It is 14% alcohol and has a pH of 3.3 but not very high acidity. No filtering. Minimum dose of SO2 just before bottling.
The Nit de Nin La Coma d'en Romeu is deep red and young in color. Opulent and open fragrance palette that is very attractive. Great class and so is the flavour! Everything a great wine should have and very accessible today. The southern orientation of the vineyard gives a more fruit-driven wine, especially red fruit, but also floral and with impressions of schist, completely balanced, complex and with an enormous length. 1,200 bottles of this Grand Cru from the Priorat have been produced and the wine has received 99/100 points from Parker.
