2008 Pesquera Crianza Alejandro Fernandez

Size Availability? price? Qty

Average critic rating : 88.0 points



The 2008 Pesquera Crianza has a fresh, lifted, slightly herbaceous bouquet that complements the red fruit profile. It perhaps lacks the fruit intensity of recent vintages but it has fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied and has a crisp raspberry and strawberry entry interlaced with spice and a touch of soy, although it tapers away toward the slightly angular finish. Drink now-2020. ||Alejandro Fernandez was instrumental in bringing Ribera del Duero to international prominence since he established his bodega back in 1972. The 65 hectares of pure Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) vine lie on south-facing gravel inclines and Fernandez is known for his late, meticulous picking, as well as long macerations and extended aging in both French and American oak. But firstly, let us begin with his second property, Condado de Haza, which constitutes 200 hectares of Tinto Fino vine that was planted in 1989. Wine Advocate.February, 2013
