Overview

The northeast-facing terroir of Planetes has always favored an elegant and refreshing style of wine. After many years of aging the fruit from this site entirely in foudre, Ester Nin and Carles Ortiz began experimenting with amphorae aging in an attempt to discover a more floral aspect of this terroir. These experiments were successful, and in 2013 they released an amphorae-aged Garnatxa from the Planetes vineyard in addition to their regular cuvée. The Garnatxes en Àmfora, as the name suggests is a younger-vine Garnatxa aged in amphorae and bottled with a minimal amount of SO2.
