Planetes de Nin Carinyena Blanca Reserva is a biodynamic, barrel-aged white wine made by Ester Nin in the D.O.Q. Priorat with the Cariñena Blanca variety.

Ester Nin is a winemaker who, having gained experience at Clos Erasmus, decided to set up her own project together with farmer Carles Ortiz. This is how Nin Ortiz, a biodynamic winery in Priorat (Tarragona) was born in 2008. Completely dedicated to their lands and wines, they belong to the select group “La renaissance des appelations” and are considered ambassadors of the biodynamic movement in Spain.

Planetes de Nin Carinyena Blanca Reserva comes from centuries-old vineyards discovered in the middle of a hectare of Cariñena Tinta. These are unusual strains lying 350 metres above sea level and cultivated according to biodynamic principles. The harvest is always manual and takes place first thing in the morning. The grapes are then left to cool for 48 hours.

In the winery, the Planetes de Nin Carinyena Blanca Reserva grapes macerate with the skins and stems for 2 days. They are then gently pressed and the resulting must ferments with native yeasts in 300-litre French oak barrels, where it remains for 7 months.

Made with a very unusual variety, Planetes de Nin Carinyena Blanca Reserva is a good way of getting to know the Cariñena Blanca variety with a Priorat style.

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.
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.
