Availability: Out of stock
The new vintage of Condado de Haza from Ribera del Duero proves again the remarkable consistency of this Spanish red wine over the years.
A brand of Grupo Pesquera, created by the late Alejandro Fernández, the Condado de Haza winery has more than 200 hectares of Tempranillo, the sole component of this wine, around the province of Burgos. Planted at an altitude of 800 metres above sea level, the vines are around 25 years of age.
The grapes were fully destemmed and macerated with the skins for some weeks. After the completion of alcoholic fermentation, this Crianza red wine was aged for 14 months in American oak barrels.
Prior to its commercial release, Condado de Haza Crianza 2018 was aged for a further 6 months in the bottle.
Aerate 30 minutes before drinking.
The red wine Condado de Haza is deep ruby with a garnet rim.
Fresh, intense notes of red and black fruit, dim toasted nuances, some herbal and lactic suggestions and aromas of cinnamon, clove and sandalwood. Despite its long ageing period, this Tempranillo is remarkably fresh.
Bold and expansive, though lighter and fresher than previous vintages. This wine from the Condado de Haza winery is full of juicy red fruit, alongside cocoa, underbrush, strawberry yoghurt and Eastern spices.Crisp acidity, savoury tannins and long finish with a toasted aftertaste.
