      Tasting Notes
      Alejandro Fernandez Pesquera Crianza 2018

      Founded in 1972. A living icon of Spanish wine and widely regarded as the Master of the Tempranillo. Alejandro Fernández achieves naturally concentrated elegant wines which are expressive in youth yet benefit greatly from age. Currently under vine in Pesquera are 500 acres of exclusively Tempranillo. Soil types include deep gravel, relatively rare in the area and essential to the singularly complex Pesquera bouquet.

      On the nose, this wine boasts hints of black and red fruit, in particularly blackberries and raspberries.

      Spicy notes appear followed by vanilla and liquorish, which give rise to a serious, complex wine with nuances that evolve over time in both glass and bottle.

      Round sumptous tannin bursts with potential for cellaring. A silky, clean wine with hints of fresh varietals that reappear under the tongue after the first few seconds in the glass, interwined with the impeccable smokiness of american wood. Pleasurable sensations envelope the palate with every sip. The finish if fruity, fresh and intense. Flavours of liquorice, blackberries and spicy linger long in the memory.

      Try this wine with a slow roasted leg of lamb or cheese of the region. Alongisde game birds and iberian ham it is simply a joy.

      Numerous awards endorse these wines; awards reaped throughout 40 years of experience in winemaking. It is, without doubt, a dream come true for Alejandro Fernández whose maxim was always to own a bodega and make fine wines. Today it could be said that reality has surpassed the dream and that Alejandro, his bodegas, and his wines have earned worldwide recognition and appreciation.
