Pesquera Reserva is made entirely from 100% Tinta del Pais – the local name given to Ribera’s own thick-skinned version of Tempranillo. Sourced from older vines, and aged for 24-30 months in oak (followed by 12 months in bottle), the Reserva is an intense, powerful wine. The Fernández’ team have been known to drop 50% of the fruit to regulate the yields, and the style balances the power and complexity of the resulting low yields and minimal handling, with the classic high-grown freshness of the region. The result is a layered, structured red with a core of silky, ripe fruits (black currant, sarsaparilla, cedar, a twist of leather), complexed by savoury bracken notes and with a long, driven and vibrantly fresh close.
