Winemaker's Notes:

Ferrer Bobet is primarily a blend of Carignane and Grenache, from hundred year old vines in some of the best vineyards in Priorat, sourced while their own vineyards mature. Though the "second wine" of Ferrer Bobet, the initial 2005 release put Ferrer Bobet on the wine world map. It launched the Ferrer Bobet mission of creating wines of elegance and purity, and the message has resonated.
My Notes:

About Ferrer Bobet:

Ferrer Bobet is all about respect. Respect for the long traditions of vine-growing and winemaking in the Priorat. Respect for the social and economic development of this rocky mountainous region in the south of Catalonia. The mutual respect of two friends, Sergi Ferrer-Salat and Raul Bobet, both passionate about the world and culture of wine. And respect for wine lovers looking for a Priorat that reflects with purity and harmony the distinctive mineral essence of this land that produced it. 2008 saw the first fruits of a vision that began six years earlier: the first of two wines, Ferrer Bobet 2005 and Ferrer Bobet Seleccio Especial 2005, were launched, using grapes from some of the oldest vines in the Priorat. It marks a milestone on an intense and fruitful journey. A journey which has only just begun.
