Familia Nin-Ortiz Planetes de Nin 2015
Planetes, not unexpectedly, comes from the vineyard site, Finca les Planetes, where Carles Ortiz purchased and renovated an east-facing vineyard on the outskirts of the village of Porrera. Planetes is a blend of old and young-vine Garnatxa Negra and Carinyena that is harvested by hand, partially destemmed (30%), fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in foudre and amphorae. The freshness and brightness of Planetes is a testament to the relatively cooler, east-facing aspect of the site as well as the hands-off approach that Carles and Ester take in the cellar.
