Alejandro Fernández discovered an abandoned hillside on the banks of the River Duero in the mid-1980s that seemed to bring together the ideal conditions to become one of the best vineyards of the region. It had a gentle southern-facing slope that ended in the river and different soils composed of gravel, clay and gypsum that promised to produce the nuances needed to create complex wines from Tempranillo grapes. Thus began an arduous three-year period of negotiations destined to purchase the small individual allotments that made up the hillside. The first 80 hectares were finally planted in 1989. Today the property, which is named after the nearby town of Haza, has a continuous covering of almost 200 hectares of excellent Tempranillo vines. Although small amounts of wine were produced in 1993, the 1994 vintage was the first that underwent full-scale commercialisation. Both vintages were mainly produced in the Pesquera facilities. It was only from 1995 that Condado de Haza became the “Château” Alejandro Fernández had dreamed of. It became a complete and self-sufficient winery encompassing the whole winemaking process from the vine to the bottle. Read less

IWC 92pts. - WA 91pts. - According to the International Wine Cellar: Bright ruby. Vivid raspberry, blackberry, anise and floral scents are fresh and pure. Juicy dark berry flavors are complemented by succulent herbs and dark chocolate, becoming sweeter with air. Leaves strong floral pastille and berry liqueur notes behind, finishing with excellent cut and precision. Very nicely focused wine. According to the Wine Advocate: Deep garnet purple colour. The nose is a little mute to begin, giving way to restrained aromas of vanilla, violets, dark cherry and black pepper. Though there s plenty of weight on the palate, an elegant style emerges, finely structured with medium to high acidity and a medium+ level of grainy tannins. Long savoury finish. Drink now to 2019.

The 2005 Crianza is purple-colored with an attractive bouquet of cedar, mineral, earth notes, espresso, and blackberry. This leads to a medium to full-bodied wine with ample ripe fruit, a firm structure, good depth, and plenty of flavor.Consume with lamb and suckling pig roasts, lamb chops cooked over vine cutting, semi cured goat cheeses, and oven raosted fowl.
