Ferrer Bobet Selecció Especial 2015 (94 WA)
“The 2015 Selecció Especial, pure Cariñena from centenary vines in the village of Porrera, matured in new French oak barrels for 19 months. 2015 was a warm and dry year with some rains in June that saved the crop. 2015 is a powerful and concentrated vintage, and it has all the classic Priorat notes of graphite and wet slate along with the elegant rusticity that only the best Cariñena is capable of. It has a full-bodied palate with glossy fruit and dusty tannins, powerful but neatly balanced. The finish is dry, with a dark, stony sensation.”
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.
