2019 Pesquera Crianza, Alejandro Fernandez

Ribera Del Duero, SpainVintage: 2019

Pesquera is one of the most foremost and respected wineries in the Ribera del Duero.  Highly sought after and each release is eagerly anticipated by fans around the world. This is the latest release of their Crianza.  It’s made from 100% Tempranillo, grown in their own vineyards, and is aged for 18 months in oak prior to bottling. On the nose the aromas are of blackberries and plums with spicy hints and a touch of vanilla creaminess while the palate shows delicious ripe raspberry and cherry fruit flavours. There’s plenty of power here which, coupled with the rounded tannins, give it a nicely sleek and silky feel in the lead up to a subtly spicy finish.

It is a complex wine and will age well so drink now to 2030.  Pair with rich red meat dishes from roasts to stews.

Description

In 1972 Alejandro Fernandez started making wine in his home town of Pesquera on the banks of the Duero a few miles east of Valladolid. At that stage, he may not have been aware of it, but he was playing a big part in bringing the wines of this region, Ribera del Duero, to the notice of the world. Such was his success that, in 1982, Ribera del Duero was granted official DO (which has since been upgraded to DOCa) status by the Spanish wine authorities and a few years later, after being discovered by Robert Parker, his wines achieved something of a cult status in the USA.

Over intervening years they have continued to cement their reputation as a leading producer in the region and steadily expanded the scale of their operations which now encompass four wineries, one of which is the well regarded Condado de Haza. While Alejandro is still involved in the business the third generation of the Fernandez Rivera family, in the shape of Alejandro and Esperanza’s granddaughters, have taken over the reins and oversee all the group’s operations which these days include wine tourism alongside their viticultural activities.
