Nit de Nin Mas d’en Caçador | Família Nin-Ortiz

In 2004 Ester bought this 3 hectare parcel of old vine Garnaxta, Garnatxa Pelluda (hairy Grenache) and Carinyena in Mas d’En Caçador. At 650 meters above sea level, this site is one of the highest in the Priorat and its north-facing slopes are buttressed by ancient stone terraces providing a footing for the vines on this pure llicorella soil. As you’d expect from such old vines the wine shows terrific purity of dark fruit and a long concentrated finish. This one’s a keeper.
