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。

2011 (RP:92)
成熟車厘子紅色,帶有紫羅蘭反映,清新及明亮。掛杯清楚也有顏色。香氣強勁,先是帶有乳酸感覺的成熟紅果,接著是深厚的香料,比之前的年份更明顯。在杯中能演變出更多意大利醋的香氣、花卉和香草,細致的烘烤和優雅礦物。味道豐富,絲絨質地,複雜、長久而新鮮。生氣勃勃,又有絕佳酸度,甜美單寧和令人驚歎的成熟感覺。

 

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.

(2011)

Ripe cherry red colour with violet reflections. Clean and very bright. Abundant well-defined and coloured tear. High aromatic intensity. Aromas of ripe red fruit with lactic touches are firstly noticed and give way to intense spiced nuances, which are more present than in previous vintages. Its evolution in the glass, let us find out pleasant balsamic aromas, floral and aromatic herb notes over slight and very fine toasted hints and elegant mineral notes. Tasty, velvety, complex, long and fresh attack. It shows a great liveliness, an excellent acidity, sweet tannins and a surprising touch of ripeness.

2012 (RP:93)

The 2012 Vinyes Velles is a blend of Cariñena with 30% Garnacha from the cooler part of the village of Porrera. It is fermented in a mixture of oak and stainless steel and matured in French oak barrels for 15 months. The 2012 feels very young and primary with beautiful notes of violets and peaches, still showing some puppy fat than needs to be rendered with some time in bottle, as well as some creamy notes and a toffee-like hints that should meld beautifully. They produce elegant results once they have some bottle age. The palate is medium to full-bodied with very fine tannins and great acidity, as 2012 was cooler than 2011, there is great purity of fruit with a perfect degree of ripeness. Quality at affordable prices. 18,864 bottles produced.

The 2014 Vinyes Velles, which means "old vines" in the Catalan language, is a blend of 70% Cariñena and 30% Garnacha from vines planted on slopes ("costers") and terraces, mostly facing northeast. It fermented in stainless steel and oak vats and aged in French oak barriques for 15 months. It is harmonious, ripe without excess, nuanced and balanced, with power and elegance and nicely integrated oak. It's textured and shows intense flavors, with good depth and a backbone of fresh acidity that lifts it up. It was bottled unfiltered and unfined in April 2016. 25,000 bottles produced.
