Nin Ortiz

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.

Organic and biodynamic agriculture sometimes sound like only fashionable terms. Here they are true: the farming at Familia Nin-Ortiz only employs organic materials in their vineyards, sprayed biodynamic infusions and applications of their own compost. All the work is manual including harvesting. When the fruit arrives at their cellar, it is chilled for 24-48 hours to prevent oxidation at the beginning of the winemaking process. Fermentations occur spontaneously and take place in foudre, demi-muid or amphorae.

The goal at Familia Nin-Ortiz is to produce elegant wines so extraction is also natural occurring without aggressive manipulation of the cap. Aging takes place in primarily neutral vessels so the purity of the site can be preserved.
