D.O.Q. Priorat (Catalonia)
Ferrer Bobet is a red wine from the Priorat region produced by the Ferrer Bobet winery. The wine is a blend of 4 different grape varieties; Cariñena (48%), Garnacha Negra (22%), Syrah (23%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (7%).
The grapes used to make Ferrer Bobet come from young vineyards that were planted between 2004 and 2006, located on slopes. The soil type is llicorella, which is the flagship type of the region.
The harvest is carried out by a careful selection of the grapes in the vineyard. They are harvested manually and are transported to the winery in small boxes with a 10kg capacity, which ensures that the grapes do not break or ferment before they have to. Once at the winery, the bunches pass through a second selection process, this time on a selection belt.
The grapes used to make Ferrer Bobet then ferment in tanks that have a 15-30 hl capacity. The containers are made with diverse materials: wood, stainless steel and cement.
Then before being bottled, Ferrer Bobet rests in french oak barrels, 60% of which are new, for nine months.
The Ferrer Bobet winery is lead by two old Friends: Sergi Ferrer-Salat and Raül Bobet. According to them, the wine functions on the basis of respect: respect towards nature, towards the Priorat region, towards the land and towards eachother.
