Red Wine Ferrer Bobet 2018
Availability: In stock
This is the new 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, planted in 2004, 2005 and 2006, and from grapes sourced from over 20-year-old vines. They grow 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 2018 was aged in 60% new and 40% used French oak barrels, where it was aged for 12 months.
Decant this red wine from Priorat 30 minutes before drinking.
The wine Ferrer Bobet is medium purple with a violet rim.
This blend of Carignan, Syrah, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon 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.
Smooth and inviting, with a very good acidity, great definition, and some silky tannins. Fruit, earth, underbrush and minerality combine in a most graceful manner. This wine from bodega Ferrer Bobet has a long, nuanced finish.
