With a different soil type and higher elevation than its sister property in Pesquera de Duero, Condado de Haza is located in the province of Burgos, which is known for its rocky soils and cooler climate. Condado de Haza is plump, textural and with a more rugged structure. The microclimate here is tempered by its proximity to the river. Hot days drive the ripeness, while the cold nights maintain high acidity. Always a textural and complex Tempranillo, the 2014 is remarkably pure and delicate showing great class and poise. Simply delicious drinking with red and blue fruits and a wonderful sappy, spicy complexity and freshness that suggests whole bunch use. The winemaking largely mimics the Pesquera; late harvesting by hand, natural ferment, vinification by parcel and 18 months in barrique, bottled unfiltered. Fabulously delicious.
