Overview

Planetes, not unexpectedly, comes from Finca Les Planetes, where Carles Ortiz purchased and renovated a northeast-facing, nearly 5ha plot of vines on schist soils on the outskirts of the village of Porrera.  Planetes is a blend of young-vine Garnatxa Negra and Carinyena that is harvested by hand, partially destemmed (30%), fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in foudre and amphorae. The freshness and brightness of Planetes is a testament to the relatively cooler, northeast-facing aspect of the site as well as the hands-off approach that Carles and Ester take in the cellar.
