Characteristics of Ferrer Bobet Vinyes Velles

Ferrer Bobet Vinyes Velles is a red wine made by Bodega Ferrer Bobet from D.O. Priorat.
Ferrer Bobet Vinyes Velles is a coupage of Cariñena and Grenache Tinta. The grapes are grown on century-old vines on steep slopes, called "costers" in Priorat.
The soil is typical for this denomination, very sought after. Slate soil, called "licorella" that contributes to the minerality and special character of the wine.
The vines are located in one of the highest and freshest areas in the denomination which guarantees the perfect ripening of the grapes. Additionally, there is a contrast in temperatures between the day and night which helps preserve aromas and acidity.

Ferrer Bobet do not use any type of insecticide or fungicide or herbicide, showing an enormous respect for the land.
The harvest is done by hand, and the grapes are transported to the winery in small 10kg crates. The grapes pass through a selection table twice where there is a strict selection from grape to grape.

The fermentation is done in 15 and 30 hl wooden and stainless steel deposits. Ferrer Bobet Vinyes Velles undergoes an aging for 15 months in lightly medium toasted and fine grain French oak barrels.
The wine is not filtered or clarified before it is bottled.
Before it is released onto the market, it rests for a minimum of 11 months in the bottle.

Tasting notes Ferrer Bobet Vinyes Velles

The Priorat region was marked by heavy drought and heat. Following an autumn and winter with normal temperatures and rainfall, spring began with an abnormal drought and high temperatures. Flowering was successful, occurring before the expected date, but the rains didn’t come. During the summer the high temperatures continued, and the lack of rainfall resulted in the earliest harvest in history. In general, the wines of this vintage are noted for their concentration, being less pronounced in wines produced with local varieties such as Grenache or Cariñena. Perfect for enjoying young, and with a medium aging capacity.
Ferrer Bobet Vinyes Velles 2016 is a concentrated and expressive red wine with aromas of ripe red fruit, spices and graphite. On the palate it is full and intense with a long-lasting finish.
The vintage began in autumn in the best possible way, with good rainfalls that would fill the water reserves for optimal growth development. Winter was characterised by low temperatures and even snow covered some areas of Priorat. March started wet and cold, which delayed the budding of the vines. In mid-May, flowering was encouraged and was followed by a somewhat unstable June with several rainfalls.
A year with a very good balance. This vintage was characterised by the absence of water stress for the plants. Winter and spring were favourable in terms of rainfall and temperatures were slightly higher than usual. At the time of budding, there was no rain, so the vines developed in a suitable manner. The flowering took place in a clean way and the Grenache vines settled in an excellent way. Summer was characterised by cool and dry days, but also humid, which led to good photosynthesis and growth of the plants. During the end of the summer, before the harvest, there was still some humidity, which preserved the freshness of the soil and, consequently, achieving a gradual ripening of the grapes, perfect to retain the aromas and the good acidity. The negative factor was the rain during the harvest days. In short, the vintage has been somewhat atypical for Priorat, with wines that are less voluminous than in a normal year in the area, but with a good acidity that is reflected in the wines and that will keep them optimal for many years.
A year that started with some problems with the flowering but ended up being very good. Winter was colder and rainier than usual. Spring continued with days of low temperatures and a lot of water that delayed flowering and the consequent setting problems until the end of March, affected production. After a complicated year, when the summer began, the rains stopped and the temperatures rose, providing excellent ripening due to optimal rainfall during the year. The year has therefore been one of the best in recent years. Fluidity, acidity and concentration augur for a long life of the wines of this vintage.

    Imágenes y situación D.O.Q. Priorat

    Ferrer Bobet has in the space of a few years managed to become one of the most established wineries in the DOQ Priorat, a feat that has taken other winemakers decades to achieve. Since they released their first wines back in 2008, the prestige of this winery has done nothing but grow. Based on their own merits, they have gained the trust and respect of consumers, with their wines consistently ranking within the top positions in national and international wine guides. The winery’s two founders, Sergi Ferrer-Salat and Raül Bobet, have lead this project with the philosophy of producing different and unique wines with very clear ideas. In record time, they have managed to catapult this idea into what is today now a long term project.
