Red Wine Ferrer Bobet 2016
Availability: In stock
This is the fourth vintage of this Spanish red wine produced by the prestigious Ferrer Bobet winery, co-owned by Sergi Ferrer-Salat and Raül Bobet (who is also the owner and winemaker of the Castell d'Encús winery).
It is made from young vines, 10 to 20 years of age, planted in steep slate slopes on the outskirts of Porrera, Priorat's freshest spot.
Harvested by hand and meticulously selected, the grapes were selected twice and fermented in 15 and 30 Hl. concrete, stainless steel and wooden vats.
After that, Ferrer Bobet 2016 was aged in 60% new and 40% used French oak barrels, where it was aged for 12 months.
Production around 20,000 bottles. Decant this red wine from Priorat 1 hour before drinking.
This Spanish red wine won the Gran Vinari d'Or 2019, Catalonia's most important wine award. The distinction is granted to Catalonia's absolute best wine.
The red wine Ferrer Bobet has a bright cherry colour with a violet rim.
This exciting crianza red wine from Ferrer Bobet shows fresh, enticing aromas of juicy red and black fruit over a deep, dark mineral background, nicely combined with remembrances of liquorice, cocoa, spices, flowers and toast.
This Priorat red wine is fresh and deep. Smooth, inviting body, with a very good acidity, great definition, and some silky tannins. Fruit, earth, underbrush and minerality are combineb in a most graceful manner. This wine from Porrera has a long, nuanced finish.
|Our personal opinion||
Exquisitely crafted, Ferrer Bobet 2016 is an enormously enjoyable wine. It is less demanding, but by no means less interesting than other wines coming from the same region.
