Pesquera Ribera del Duero 2004

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.

Tinto Pesquera is the flagship wine produced by Alejandro Fernández at a bodega he founded in 1972 in Ribero del Duero, Spain. He is known for being one of the pioneers of the modern Ribera del Duero industry, seeking out vineyard designations and using techniques that no one in the area had explored before. Pesquera was originally produced using a 16th century winepress, which can still be found there today. He introduced the espalier system (tying vines to a trelis) to the area, planting new Tempranillo vines as well as saving old ones, which would eventually lend themselves to the outstanding character of this distinguished wine.  Read less

Created in the 1970's by the winemaker Alejandro Fern ndez, Pesquera has certainly grown to become one of the seminal wineries of the Ribero Del Duero. This crianza is a perfect introduction, showing notes of cardamom, tobacco leaf, and black plum.
