“Alejandro Fernandez has become one of the superstars of Spain. His wine is made from the Tempranillo grape and is aged 2-21/2 years in casks, which produces remarkable depth and richness, and a texture not unlike top notch Pomerol. The rich fruit combined with the sweet oaky smells has resulted in some opulent and voluptuous wines that are real head turners.”Robert Parker, The Wine Buyer’s Guide
Tinto Pesquera Crianza is cherry red in colour. On the nose intense aromas of dark fruits together with wood notes. Hints of fallen leaves and spices such as vanilla. In the mouth smooth entry becomes lush with abundant ripe tannins. The presence of well-integrated oak aromas compliments the fruit and spice beautifully. It has an excellent balance between its acidity and heat. The finish is long-lasting, refined and elegant.
