Characteristics of Nit de Nin La Coma d'en Romeu
Nit de Nin La Coma d'en Romeu is a red wine produced by the winery Familia Nin-Ortiz in Porrera, D.O.Q. Priorat.
The winery Familia Nin-Ortiz is formed by Ester Nin and Carles Ortiz, two people who are in love with the steep slate hillsides of the Priorat and the biodynamic agriculture.
In 2004 Ester Nin took over the technical management of Clos Erasmus, at the same time as she began to make her own wines in the same winery, Clos i Terrasses.
Their philosophy is to produce wines that express the terroir and the climate, with utmost respect for the vineyard and its surroundings. This is why they cultivate all their farms organically under the parameters of biodynamics.
Nit de Nin La Coma d'en Romeu is a wine made from Grenache, from old vines of the farm La Coma d’en Romeu, which was acquired by Familia Nin-Ortiz, and which has been cultivated biodynamically for over 5 years. This farm is located near Porrera, at 400 metres of altitude, on very steep hillsides, planted on licorella soils. Of the 11 hectares of the farm, only 1.5 are cultivated with vines, in this case, with Grenache.
Harvesting is carried out manually, selecting the grapes in the vineyard and in the winery. After cold maceration of 4-5 days, the whole bunches ferment with local yeasts in 3000-litre Allier oak vats for approximately 15 days. Once the alcoholic fermentation has ended, the wine goes through the saignée and the skins are slightly pressed. This wine is aged in used 600-litre oak barrels for 16 months.
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.
Nit de Nin La Coma d'en Romeu 2016 is an intense, balanced wine with a lot of personality. A vintage that is highly expressive on the nose, and with a great deal of volume and harmony on the palate.
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.
Priorat is craftsmanship and tradition, old and robust vines that are grown and born deep inside the province of Tarragona. They are grown on slopes that are sleety with low fertility and difficult to grow in. In Priorat they produce great red wines of an excellent quality, a maroon colour, robust, dense and rich flavour, intense aromas and sometimes there are reflections present of minerals from the soils.
Ester Nin has quickly become one of the key names in Priorat. She started with Mas Martinet and Clos Erasmus, which is where she was first awarded 100 Parker points for a Spanish wine. From there she started her own project, giving the winery her own name. Her first wine, Nit de Nin, exploded onto the market, scoring 98 Parker points for her first vintage. Then came the rest: a whole collection of biodynamic wines with the ability to showcase the full strength and essence of Priorat, and each vintage touched by Parker's magic wand. These wines have found themselves a comfortable position among Parker’s highest rated Spanish wines.
