Bodegas Alejandro Fernández Tempranillo Vino de la Tierra de Castilla Y León Dehesa la Granja 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Opened the 1999 crianza on the off chance: what a pleasant surprise! Lightening tinto, berry fruit on the nose, balanced acidty and rounding tannins. Very satisfying sweet fruit on the palate with a long finish - and to think I picked up this little gem for just £13.50 at Harrods, quite casually, all those years ago! Had mine with simple pizza to rival Da Michel's of Napoli but would pair well with haute cuisine any time!
