Condado de Haza Ribera del Duero 2000

Member Review by ryanopaz:

Deep rich purple in color. Nose is strong vanilla oak with mineral, pepper and cherry. Good body with dry high tannin finish. In the mouth the black fruit, earth, light clove and black pepper all seem overwhelmed by the oak. Maybe this will calm down with time, but the oak it seems to overshadow the nice fruit within. alt=3 [NR]

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
