Product Description
Details

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.

The 2018 vintage of Ferrer Bobet is, again, made mostly from Carignan, complemented with Syrah, Grenache and a brushstroke of Cabernet Sauvignon.

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.

Appearance

The wine Ferrer Bobet is medium purple with a violet rim.

Nose

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.

Palate

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.

Our personal opinion

Exquisitely crafted, Ferrer Bobet 2018 is an enormously enjoyable wine. It showcases the most elegant qualities of the region.

Awfully nice Priorat, conversational and controlled. No mineral savagery here.

This one is a serious contender to the "Priorat's absolute best value title". Multilayered, sculpted with laser-like precision.

This is fascinating. Priorat with an Atlantic character.

Value
This new wine of Ferrer Bobet includes some French grapes in the blend. This fact makes the wine quite approachable to an international palate, while keeping Priorat's trademark earthy, mineral core. This wine is simply great, and I think it will have a great evolution over the next 5-6 years.
