Ferrer Bobet Selecio Especial Vinyes Velles 2014 (97 W&S)
“Around the little town of Porrera there is plenty of old-vine cariñena. The grape thrives in this high-altitude spot. From those steep slate slopes, Ferrer Bobet crafts this bright, luminous red with all the components of a cariñena from ancient vines: The youthful purple color, the bright, tart acidity, the aromas of wild red fruit, the flowers, the herbs, the tight, vertical structure. This will last for a decade at least.” Wine & Spirits Magazine
Selecció Especial is 100% Carignane from hundred year old vines in some of the best vineyards in Priorat, in one of the coolest, steepest and highest elevations of the appellation, factors which contribute to optimal phenolic ripeness and help preserve flavors and acidity. A wine of truly profound fruit and minerality.
Ferrer Bobet is about respect. Firstly, the mutual respect of two friends, Sergi Ferrer-Salat and Raül Bobet and their passion for the world and culture of wine. Secondly, the respect for the long traditions of viticulture and vinification in Priorat and a commitment to the economic and social development of the region. Thirdly, and above all, the respect for the terroir and a dedication to producing wines that reflect the distinctive mineral essence from the land.
