酒莊位於西班牙加泰羅尼亞南面的Priorat，由兩位好朋友Sergi Ferrer-Selat和Raul Bobet共同創立，兩人都十分尊重當地葡萄種植和釀酒傳統，採用來自逾百歲老樹的Carignan和Grenache之餘，所有皆是有機耕種，於2005年推出第一系列的葡萄酒後，迅即成為西班牙葡萄酒的新時尚，而2008年的Ferrer Bobet更成為著名漫畫《神之水滴》的第11使徒。
釀酒前的葡萄也經過雙重檢定，並於較小木桶發酵，再在幼細的法國橡木桶陳年15個月，所以酒質特別絲滑，其中Ferrer Bobet Seleccio Especial特別受注目。今後，他們會繼續以保持葡萄酒的優雅、新鮮、和諧及礦物平衡為目標，釀造更優質的葡萄酒。
西班牙 DOQ Priorat
100年的老Carignan vines (100%)。只採用於石板土壤斜坡上的葡萄，並以人手採集至10公斤箱中。然後再逐粒葡萄揀選，在地心吸力下搬移到大缸。
Ferrer Bobet is all about respect. Respect for the long traditions of vine-growing and wine-making in the Priorat. Respect for the social and economic development of this rocky, mountainous region in the south of Catalonia. The mutual respect of two friends, Sergi Ferrer-Selat and Raul Bobet, both passionate about the world and culture of wine. And respect for wine lovers looking for a Priorat thatreflects with purity and harmony the distinctive mineral essence of this land that produced it. 2008 saw the first fruits of a vision that began six years earlier: our first two wines, Ferrer Bobet 2005 and Ferrer Bobet Seleccio Especial 2005, were launched, using grapes from some of the oldest vines in the Priorat. It marks a milestone on an intense and fruitful journey.
DOQ Priorat, Spain
Country of Origin:
100-year-old Carignan vines (95%) and old Grenache noir vines (5%). Grapes exclusively from steep slate hillsides picked by hand into 10kg boxes. Selected berry by berry on a double sorting table and then transferred to tanks by gravity.
Fermentation in 15 and 30 Hl wooden tanks.
Malolactic conversion and ageing in new fine-grained, medium and lightly toasted French oak barrels for 18 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Bottle aged for minimum of 11 months.
The color is a luminescent purple and there is a sensation of harmony that is noticeable as soon as you put your nose in the glass. The palate is extremely balanced and super-fresh, with perfectly integrated acidity and velvety tannins. There is a great work in the vineyard and in the winery to achieve this level of sophistication in the tannins.
Cariñena can produce incredibly elegant wines even in a heady and ripe vintage like this one, where the aromas are exuberant, with some oak and spicy aromas and notes of wet slate. The palate is full-bodied, with dusty, grainy tannins and great intensity and power but extremely balanced. This has concentration and clout, fresh minerality and balance to age.There are 3,000 bottles produced.
A year with a very good balance. This vintage was characterised by the absence of water stress for the plants. Winter and spring were favourable in terms of rainfall and temperatures were slightly higher than usual. At the time of budding, there was no rain, so the vines developed in a suitable manner. The flowering took place in a clean way and the Grenache vines settled in an excellent way. Summer was characterised by cool and dry days, but also humid, which led to good photosynthesis and growth of the plants. During the end of the summer, before the harvest, there was still some humidity, which preserved the freshness of the soil and, consequently, achieving a gradual ripening of the grapes, perfect to retain the aromas and the good acidity. The negative factor was the rain during the harvest days. In short, the vintage has been somewhat atypical for Priorat, with wines that are less voluminous than in a normal year in the area, but with a good acidity that is reflected in the wines and that will keep them optimal for many years.
