Castell d' Encus Jhana 2018 (RP: 93)

ESRS0017

Castell d'Encus於西班牙加泰隆尼亞,比利牛斯山脈分區的Costers del Segre產區,Raul Bobet曾在大名鼎鼎的Torres酒莊擔任主釀酒師,釀酒期間受到啓發,期望可以不受全球温室效應影响下繼續釀出心中最完美的酒其後Raul Bobet於海拔1,000米高的Talarn村開始他的釀酒大計,無意中發現酒莊旁修道院竟然仍保留了僧侶曾在這裡釀酒的痕跡,包括多個12世紀時以人手開鑿的石窖,自然而然便還原古法釀造方法,起初只用少量葡萄作試驗,後來大部分葡萄也用這石窖發酵,然後再到不銹鋼桶或橡木桶陳年這數十年來能釀出令飲家驚嘆的葡萄酒全因Raul的不斷努力和精益求精,他年青時是工程學科出身的的,所以他亦設計了可再生能源(地熱能發電)推動整個酒莊的電力,非常環保。另外Raul 喜愛哲學和冥想,他的產品皆以梵文或以葡萄生長的地方命名。他的理念很簡單 :

"我們希望釀造出風格非常清晰的葡萄酒,以保持新鮮度為支柱,避免過度成熟和過度萃取。 我們追求優雅和微妙,但又不放棄葡萄酒的複雜性和圓潤感。 毫無疑問,從這個意義上說,葡萄發揮主要作用。"

他的理念看似簡單,但實際操作上卻需要在葡萄種植和釀造過程等細節上花上無比的心思和管理能力,幕後亦有著熟練的團隊協助,才可以在不可預料的天氣下仍能釀出喝一口便令人感動的酒。

Castell d'Encus 毫無疑問是近來世界舞台上最令人振奮的西班牙酒莊。而Raul Bobet亦是有份負責Ferrer Bobet酒莊的人,在那裡他與葡萄酒發燒友Sergi Ferrer-Salat合作,展現出另一高山Priorat酒的獨特風味。

此酒因為沒有經過淨化,所以會出現沉澱物。而因為沒有二氧化硫,所以應保存在清涼地方避免不必要演化。酒內酸度令此酒比一般自然葡萄有更強陳年能力,只需把酒保存於適當的條件和溫度下。

"Jhana"原意是一種冥想方式。此酒之所以命名,是因為在比利牛斯山脈地區,人們享受著沉思和自然,這有助於冥想。
釀造Rosé葡萄酒的概念始於想要將Rosé葡萄酒發展至最完整,強調像陳年白葡萄酒一樣的陳年潛力。Rosé葡萄酒最近因使用工業性高產量的葡萄園和整個壓榨發酵過程而聲譽不佳。Jhana挑戰這種看法,保持單寧和精細之間的平衡。Jhana用野生酵母發酵後,在細酒糟中陳釀五個月,以增加風味。

Raul Bobet’s groundbreaking wines from the Pyrenees subzone of the Costers del Segre appellation, are produced in the village of Talarn at 1,000 meters altitude. The wines are named with Sanskrit words or after the places where grapes are grown. Nowadays most of the wines are fermented in the 12th century stone lagares from the property. It has to be seen to be believed. However, the process is not the most important thing, what is really important is that the results are superb. These are some of the most exciting new wines throughout Spain. And Bobet, the ex-Torres enquiring mind, is also responsible for the breathtaking Priorats from the Ferrer-Bobet winery, his joint venture with entrepreneur and wine lover Sergi Ferrer-Salat.

Jhana refers to a type of meditation. Its name is given because in our Pyrenees area silence and nature are enjoyed, which are conductive to meditation.
The concept of making a Rosé wine starts from wanting to dignify this type of wine to the fullest, emphasizing as in the great white wines, its aging potential. Rosé wines have recently suffered from a poor reputation due to the use of industrial high-yield vineyards and fermentation of the entire pressing, including the saignee fractions. Jhana challenges this perception, maintaining the equilibrium between tannins and finesse. Fermented with wild yeasts, Jhana is aged on fine lees for five months to provide a signature complexity.
