2008 Tinto Pesquera, Ribera del Duero Millenium Reserva


 W I N E M A K E R’ S N O T E S · The Fernández family has been passionate about winemaking for over four
decades, during which they have created four iconic wineries that comprise patriarch Alejandro Fernández’s wine legacy:
Tinto Pesquera, Condado de Haza, Dehesa La Granja and El Vínculo. Tinto Pesquera, the Grupo Pesquera’s flagship
property, is known for producing some of the most sought-after Tempranillosin the world. Dark cherry red in color with
a maroon rim, Tinto Pesquera’s Millenium Reserva is only made in select vintages. Containing a very complex nose, with
notes of mixed berries and licorice wrapped in sleek oak, vanilla and roasted coffee, the palate is fine and elegant, with
impressive smoothness. A dense, but noticeably fresh-tasting wine, the 2008 Millenium Reserva contains the perfect
balance between alcohol, acidity and fruit. 100% estate-owned Tempranillo

Although at the beginning things were not easy, in the 1970s time finally proved the committed and determined young Alejandro Fernández right. After 10 years of hard work, the modest 16th century stone-built bodega planted the seed for what was to become one of the most prestigious bodegas in Spain. Nowadays, the result of such an extraordinary endeavour is appreciated worldwide.

The Tempranillo vineyards, the “queen of grapes”, the delicate variety so skilfully mastered by Alejandro, furnish the Castilian soils that are watered by the River Duero. The vines, which are always trained on low espalier trellises, “to better capture the heat from the ground” are factories of sensations and pleasures that are passed on to his wines. The vines grow in poor, well-drained soils, composed of sand and gravel over a limestone and clay subsoil, an ideal combination for rootstock. With the help of the wind, the rain and the sun the plants manufacture aromas and flavours beset with nuances, which they deftly amass in the grapes. From his 200 hectares of breathtaking vineyards, Alejandro makes wines in which the wood has great respect for the fruit. Over time, the wines become more complex and nuanced without losing their original character; a phenomenon that has made the name Tinto Pesquera synonymous with fine wine from Ribera del Duero.
