Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez Ribera del Duero Pesquera Crianza 1985
Grape Variety: Tempranillo 100% Alcohol Content: 13% Vol. Ageing: 18 months in new American oak barrels and 6 months in the bottle. Sight: This wine’s cherry red colour reveals its youth and fruitiness. Its aspect is clean and appears to be glyceric. Nose: The wine’s intense bouquet reveals the best dark fruit marked by impeccable wood aromas. Hints of fallen leaves and certain spices such as vanilla. Taste: Starts off smoothly upon entry into the mouth to later become lush with abundant ripe tannins and an excellent balance between its acidity and alcohol content. Flavours from the barrel do not overwhelm the fruit. Refined, long-lasting and elegant retronasal effect. Accompanying Dishes and How to Serve: Its fruity richness and abundant tannins suggest that it is best drunk at around 17º C and accompanied by the best roasts, farmyard poultry, veal stews as well as semi-cured cow’s and goat’s cheese.
More than a working philosophy, the four wineries that form the wine heritage of Alejandro Fernández –the Pesquera Corporation– share the same story of love for the viniculture that time helped to perfect. The bonds with its home land are clearly expressed in the symbol of the group: the image of the Arch and the Tower of Pesquera de Duero, typical of its flagships, the “Tinto Pesquera’.
