Characteristics of Nita

Nita is a red wine from the D.O Priorat produced by Meritxell Pallejà. This is a blend of Garnacha (45%), Cariñena (35%), Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) and Syrah (5%).

The grape used to produce for Nita originates from 2 hectares that are owned by the winery, located in Gratallops
The harvest is completed by hand and each process carefully respects the environment.

Once in the winery, the grapes are destemmed and are cold macerated.

The must is obtained by fermenting the grapes in stainless steel containers at a controlled temperature.

Nita is placed in concrete vats for a few weeks before being bottled.

Meritxell Pallejà wanted to pay tribute with this wine to his grandmother. Cal Nite en Falset was the name of the house where she lived and the label commemorates the embroidery that she used to make.

Tasting notes Nita

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.
We present the new 2016 vintage, characterised by the wettest winterin the last five years. Not only did it rain in winter, but there was also wet weather up until summer arrived, especially inMarch and April. In summer everything changed, and it was one of the driest inhistory, with only 28 litres being recorded between July and October.If we compare the temperatures in 2012 and 2016, the 2016 crophad to endure a much colder winter than in 2012, which turned outto be positive, since the frost cleared the fields ofvine parasites. During the spring, lower temperaturesthan in 2012 were also recorded.Due to all these climatic conditions there was a delay insprouting, which began on March 28th, and which led to a delayin flowering of between three and four weeks.Once the summer arrived, the Priorat got all the luck, sincethe rains disappeared, while in the rest of Europethey were incessant. It was something that nobody expected considering thewinter we’d had. Taking into account the delay insprouting, the harvest started around mid-October on some ofthe estates.Obtaining fresh wines with an extraordinary acidity is dueto this long duration of the grape in the strain that has so characterisedthis vintage.
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 right cherry with garnet tones. Clean and medium robe. Nose Fresh and fruity aromas. Predominance of sweet red fruits. Presence of floral undertones, a layer of violet and balsamic touches with a pleasant mineral base.
Taste Fresh and balanced, full-bodied and flavoursome. Good acidity and a long mineral finish.
Sight Intense, very clean and bright cherry red colour with maroon edges. Medium robe wine with thin tears. Nose Fresh and balanced aromas among which the notes of red fruit are mixed with light fresh spicy hints and vegetal touches. After swirling the glass, a great load of balsamic aromas appears providing the wine with its characteristic freshness, along with mineral notes typical of the licorella soils.  Elegant floral background (violets). Taste Wine with a nice and intense attack and an excellent, smooth and flavourful mid palate, with well balanced aromas. It shows fresh notes of juicy fruit on a good mineral background. It has a good acidity, nice and noticeable tannins and a nice, lingering finish, with a light sweetness.
Sight Intense ruby colour with violet trims, which evidence its youth. Bright and clean wine with good tears.
Nose In the nose, it is fresh and fruity with lots of red fruits, mineral notes and floral touches (violet). Taste Good attack. Quite fruity and mineral wine, and at the same time, very well structured and balanced. Fleshy and silky mid palate. Slightly astringent tannins and good acidity that provides a touch of freshness. Long finish.
Sight In the glass clean and bright intense red-violet reflection of his youth. Nose The nose is fresh and fruity with mineral and violet notes. Taste Expression fruit and terroir memories of the area, licorella Priorat.
