"The 2016 Nit de Nin Mas d’en Caçador was produced with grapes from 78- to 113-year-old vines in the Mas d'en Caçador vineyard in Porrera. It's a blend of Garnacha Negra, Garnacha Peluda and Cariñena with some 5% white grapes. It fermented with full clusters and indigenous yeasts in a 3,200-liter oak vat and matured in a similar 2,700-liter oak vat. It has great balance and is ripe and Mediterranean, without any excess; it's incredibly elegant and has character. In a way, it makes me think of a classical Châteauneuf, with fine tannins and subtle minerality. 4,071 bottles and 60 magnums were filled in April 2019."

"The dynamic Nin-Ortiz family has started building their new winery in their Planetes vineyard (right now, their winery is heir home!). They have released a new single-vineyard Garnacha Peluda called La Rodeda, and they keep working with Cariñena Blanca; this variety has finally been added to the catalog of grape varieties of Spain, so it's in the process of being legally allowed in Priorat."

"All that was in Priorat, but they also keep working in the Pla de Manlleu zone of Penedès, where Ester comes from: They've planted another 0.5 hectares, added one hectare of old vines and now have their small winery ready for the two wines they produce there."

"In case you're not familiar with their work, this is how they explain it, in their own words: "We only work with our own vineyards and bottle by vineyard, to preserve the identity of the place and soils. We do not buy grapes, in order to guarantee that all our wines are made with 100% certified organic grapes. We are part of "La Reneissance des Appellations" as a qualitative seal of biodynamic viticulture, in order to obtain healthy grapes without residues, which allows us to make spontaneous fermentations without adding SO2 during the fermentation, only during aging and bottling.""

Nit de Nin Mas d’En Caçador: In 2004 Ester bought a 1.5ha parcel of old vine Garnatxa Negre, Peluda, and Carinyena in Mas d’En Caçador– the famed vineyard on the border between Porrera and Gratallops. At 650 meters above sea level, this site is one of the highest in the Priorat and its north-facing slopes are pure blue and black schist soil. Since that time she has leased an additional 2ha of vines adjacent to her original purchase. Garnatxa Peluda, or hairy Grenache, is lighter in color than Garnatxa Negre as well as being fresher, lower in alcohol and marked by a spicy flavor profile – characteristics that temper the tannins of the Carinyena and the richness of the Garnatxa.
