Planetes, not unexpectedly, comes from the vineyard site, Finca Les Planetes, where Carles Ortiz purchased and renovated an east-facing, nearly 5-hectare plot of vines on schist soils on the outskirts of the village of Porrera.
Both Ester and Carles are proponents of biodynamic farming and minimalist winemaking, believing that the duty of a vigneron is to get out of the way of terroir.
Planetes is a blend of Garnatxa Negra and Carinyena that is harvested by hand, destemmed, fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in foudre. The freshness and brightness of Planetes is a testament to the relatively cooler aspect of the site as well as the hands-off approach that Carles and Ester take in the cellar.
Ageing: 18 months in foudre
