Ferrer Bobet is an outstanding and unique project in the Priorat. Sergi Ferrer-Salat and Raül Bobet, 2 friends passionate about wine and oenology planted 25ha in the coolest and highest spots of the Porrera sub-zone of the Priorat. In the vineyard they planted the lowest vigour rootstocks to minimise yield to about 800 grams per vine, a close plantation ensure competition between the vines.
Raül designed his own small yet very wide tanks to vinify the various parcels separately to ensure optimum quality.

Ferrer Bobet 2006 is made from Old Carignane (70%) and Grenache Noir (30%) vines, all planted on steep slate hillsides and terraces. Grapes are picked by hand into small bins, and selected berry by berry on a double sorting table before being transferred to tanks by gravity.
o “There’s depth and intensity to the black cherry, pomegranate and dark chocolate flavors in this focused red, which remains graceful and harmonious, with well-integrated tannins and a vibrant finish that’s fresh and complex.” 93 Wine Spectator
o “The fruit for the 2006 Ferrer Bobet was sourced from 100-year-old Garnacha and Carinena which account for 88% of the blend, the balance being Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of slate/mineral, scorched earth, lavender and roasted black fruits lead to a dense, rich, full-bodied wine with well-concealed ripe tannins.” 92 Wine Advocate
