The wine

Nit de Nin is one of the Priorat wines to offer more refinement, elegance and complexity, but nevertheless it is still almost an unknown. Not many bottles were released onto the market and this inevitably made it become highly treasured by those who had come across it, especially when they realised that the 2005 had obtained 98 points from the prestigious wine critic, Robert Parker.

Organic or biodynamic farming occasionally sounds like mere fashionable terms. Here they really mean something: Esther and Carles look after every detail naturally, patiently, carefully and respectfully, with the wine conveying the purity of this stance and great balance. It is not at all surprising that Ester and Carles are the people who Dafne Glorian, producer of Clos Erasmus, has entrusted with looking after her vineyards too.

Nit de Vin is made with Cariñena (40%), Hairy Grenache (30%) and Red Grenache (30%) grapes from old coster vineyards (on hillsides with a very steep inclination), from vines aged between 70 and 104 years old, planted in two parcels both located in the Mas d'en Caçador district, within the municipality of Porrera. The wine ages for 16 months in a 3,000 L foudre.

Nit de Nin — one to have in the cellar.

Up until now, not many people have heard of Ester Nin, but this oenologist with roots in the Penedés region, who became established some years ago in the town of Porrera (Priorat), is the person whom Daphne Glorian has entrusted with looking after her highly prized vineyards at Clos i Terrasses since 2004. Returning to her own family business, Ester Nin and Carles Ortiz currently have two wines on the market, Nit de Nin (her first vintage was 2004) and Planetes de Nin (from...
