Characteristics of Nelín

Nelín is a white wine produced by the winery Clos Mogador in the D.O Priorat.

Clos Mogador is the winery of René Barbier, one of the names with the most weight in this region. Descending from a wine family arriving in the Priorat in the 1980's, producing one of the most prestigious wines in the whole appellation. This wine is now internationally famous: Clos Mogador.

Nelín is produced from Grenache as the main varietal and a small percentage from Macabeo and Escanyavelles. The grapes originate from 4 small estates, planted in slate between 350 to 500 meters above sea level. The vines are carefully worked with the utmost respect for the environment and the grapes, using only organic treatments.

The harvest is realised by hand, in small 10kg capacity containers. The grapes are picked in the first few hours of the morning because of lower temperatures to keep the grapes from oxidising.

Once at the winery, 90% of the grape is pressed and the free run juice is separated. The rest of the grape is macerated for 12 hours before being pressed.

Nelín
is fermented with local yeast from the same vineyards in oak vats and oak barrels. The fermentation process is controlled at 16-18ºC lasting for 4-5 weeks.
The ageing process lasts for 18 months in large 1200 litre wooden containers and 600 litre stainless steel tanks.

Nelín is a wonderful white wine from the Priorat. This is a wine that searches for the maximum authenticity and expression of the terroir.

Tasting notes Nelín

The Priorat region was marked by heavy drought and heat. Following an autumn and winter with normal temperatures and rainfall, spring began with an abnormal drought and high temperatures. Flowering was successful, occurring before the expected date, but the rains didn’t come. During the summer the high temperatures continued, and the lack of rainfall resulted in the earliest harvest in history. In general, the wines of this vintage are noted for their concentration, being less pronounced in wines produced with local varieties such as Grenache or Cariñena. Perfect for enjoying young, and with a medium aging capacity.
Nelín 2016 is a deep, mature and mineral white wine. Another vintage that displays the excellent balance between the two varieties: the structure and the more mature notes of the Grenache with the finesse and freshness of the Macabeo, all this over a very elegant mineral base note.
The vintage began in autumn in the best possible way, with good rainfalls that would fill the water reserves for optimal growth development. Winter was characterised by low temperatures and even snow covered some areas of Priorat. March started wet and cold, which delayed the budding of the vines. In mid-May, flowering was encouraged and was followed by a somewhat unstable June with several rainfalls.
A year with a very good balance. This vintage was characterised by the absence of water stress for the plants. Winter and spring were favourable in terms of rainfall and temperatures were slightly higher than usual. At the time of budding, there was no rain, so the vines developed in a suitable manner. The flowering took place in a clean way and the Grenache vines settled in an excellent way. Summer was characterised by cool and dry days, but also humid, which led to good photosynthesis and growth of the plants. During the end of the summer, before the harvest, there was still some humidity, which preserved the freshness of the soil and, consequently, achieving a gradual ripening of the grapes, perfect to retain the aromas and the good acidity. The negative factor was the rain during the harvest days. In short, the vintage has been somewhat atypical for Priorat, with wines that are less voluminous than in a normal year in the area, but with a good acidity that is reflected in the wines and that will keep them optimal for many years.
Sight Intense yellow with golden tones. Nose Intense and very pleasant. Mineral notes and characteristics from the barrel together with floral touches. Fruity memories.
Taste Fresh and round. Herbal memories combined with fruity and aged notes from the barrel. Long finish.

Sight Intense yellow colour with golden reflections. Very clean and bright wine with abundant glyceric tears. Nose Elegant and complex aromas. Its elegant floral aromas and the notes of white and stone fruit are noticed on first nosing. When it opens up, the fruit gains in intensity and some hint of citrus and herbal aromas are felt along with seductive notes provided during the ageing (nuts, pastries, butter, quince...) on a dense and attractive mineral background. Taste A pleasure! Wide and bulky attack with a great unctuous mid palate, well-bodied and fresh at the same time. Its notes of fruit and flowers and the aromas provided during the ageing are released in perfect harmony. Very nice, excellent and lively acidity. Long and very persistent finish with a light bitterness and a mineral aftertaste. Elegant and complex wine to be enjoyed slowly.
Sight Straw yellow with golden reflection of old, dense and burly. Nose The nose is elegant, with great personality mineral, slate and graphite, Foster notes, leather, wood toast. Taste The mouth is powerful, unctuous wines but with a refreshing citrus tip.
