Nit de Nin is made of the grapes from 80 to 110 years old Garnacha, Garnacha Pelluda and Cariñena vines. 1,5ha parcel of Mas d’En Caçador, the famed vineyard on the border between Porrera and Gratallops, bought by Ester in 2004. At 650 meters above sea level, this exceptional site is one of the highest in the Priorat and its north-facing slopes are pure blue and black schist soil giving the wine mineral character. The hand-picked grapes are spontaneously fermented and matured in large foudre.
Nit de Nin 2016 is deep with mineral character more than fruity. While not dominating, ripe dark fruit of black cherries and blackberries, orange blossoms are in the foreground. Aromas of graphite, laurel, violets, essential oils, and balsamic notes gives the wine a distinctive character. Coming from high elevated vineyards, the wine manages to be deep and elegant at the same time. The sweetness of the fruit is balanced perfectly with the acidity, tannins are silky soft. Just wonderful.
