Ferrer Bobet Selecció Especial 2016 (95 DE)
“Made from centenarian vines in Porrera, planted on slate soils. Careful harvest and winemaking, with grain selection. Fermented in large oak vats, then aged in French oak and bottle. Restrained on the nose, opening up slowly to elegant blackcurrant fruit and spice. The wine is tightly structured, but suavely textured, very long and delicious. A benchmark for old-vine wine: power and finesse in lovely balance.”
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.
