Winemaker Alejandro Fernandez is a legend, and this elegant and fruity red from Spain will show you why. Intensely expressive in its youth, with dark fruits, leather, and spice, it is a joy to drink. In style, this will remind longtime Pesquera fans of the early export vintages, notably the 1983.
Bodegas Alejandro FernandezView all wine
Original bodega founded in 1972. A living icon of modern Spanish wine, Alejandro Fernández was one of the first in his country to return to biodynamic, low yield viticulture in order to produce concentrated oak-aged red wines capable of extended bottle aging. Currently under vine are 500 acres, almost exclusively Tempranillo, in a range of soil types including a locally-rare gravel deposit. Following development of new wine estates in the 1990's current vintages are of unprecedented quality. The 'Master of the Tempranillo', now at the peak of his career.
