Ferrer Bobet Priorat 2017 (94 WA)
“The eponymous 2017 Ferrer-Bobet is a blend of 65% Cariñena, 25% Garnacha, 15% Syrah and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon mostly from their own vines planted between 2004 and 2005 on llicorella slate on terraces and slopes, higher in Cariñena in this warmer year. It fermented after a short cold maceration and matured in French barriques for 12 months. This is fresh and elegant, a character of Cariñena on poor soils. The wine has good ripeness but no with no excess; it has floral aromas and even an herbal touch. It’s supple and spicy and has magical freshness. It has more Cariñena than ever.”
Ferrer Bobet Priorat is the second vintage of a Priorat produced primarily from Ferrer Bobet’s own vineyards. It fulfills the vision of elegance, freshness and detail that were the reasons for starting the estate. It is a Carignan based blend, based on low vigor and high quality rootstocks and clones, aiming for perfectly balanced vines.
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.
