2015 Nit de Nin Mas d'En Caçador, Nin-Ortiz, Priorat

One of the highest vineyards in Priorat, at 650m, and farmed biodynamically, this is deep, dark and brooding, but with tons of complexity and lift, too. It's a wine with a bright future ahead: one of the best wines from Priorat we've tasted.

TASTING NOTES

The Nit de Nin family has grown with the addition of a new vineyard. The wine produced since 2003 comes from Mas d'en Caçador—this was always named on the label, but it is now also specified in the wine name to distinguish between the new vineyard. The 2015 Nit de Nin Mas d’en Caçador comes from the vineyard mentioned in the name, a famous place in Porrera planted with old vines of Garnacha Negra, Garnacha Peluda and Cariñena. It fermented in an oak vat with indigenous yeasts and matured in a similar vat for 18 months. It's heady and ripe, exuberant and very open, a hedonistic, round and lush wine. The palate reveals very fine tannins and great harmony. 4,774 bottles and some larger formats were filled in April 2017.
