Alejandro Fernandez Pesquera Reserva 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaking is relatively traditional at Pesquera, with only Tempranillo<br/>(locally known as Tinta Fina) employed, and 24 months aging in American oak for<br/>the Reserva which serves to coax gentle velvety yet wonderfully rich flavours.<br/>The essence of Ribera Del Duero is thus captured, with all the sensual harmony<br/>of traditional Spanish winemaking, but with perhaps more concentration and<br/>structure than wines aged in a similar fashion in Rioja. The wine has an<br/>attractive ripe cherry colour and then whiffs of well-seasoned fruit, backed up<br/>by notes of cocoa and vanilla. On the palate dark forest flavours are<br/>generously wrapped around the fruit. Full-bodied yet refined, this wine is<br/>delicious with game. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)

Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez:
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’.

Tiefes Purpur. In der Nase würzig, ledrig, grosse vielfalt von Frucht. Am Gaumen enorm konzentrier, reichhaltig fruchtig, gut eingebundene Tannine. Langes Finish. Grosses Potential!
