“Legendary winemaker Denis Dubourdieu teams up with young South African talent Mia Fischer to create the ‘First Growth of the Cape’. Uncompromised quality is the leitmotiv for this wine that is determined to set new standards – with a strict limitation of 3745 bottles in its third vintage.

Profound, dark ruby colour in the glass. An explosion of fruit aromas with blueberry, huckleberry, cassis, notes of juniper and liquorice, over a background of havana tobacco, incense and cedarwood, with hints of cardamom and black pepper, and floral reminiscences of peony. The mellow and velvety attack is followed by a dense an savoury evolution, leading to a lovely and endless sugary final, backed by the freshness of the tannins. Stylistically marrying the complex fruit bomb with a classic right-bank structure, this wine is crafted to beautifully age over decades.” Producer’s Notes

Reviews

  • Joseph Newman

    I like this Reserva from RdD. 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in oak barrels.

    3.8 stars with more aging potential.

    A deep ruby red and purple shades. Thick long legs in the glass.

    On the nose medium intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, black raspberries, horse saddle, leather and slightly oak.

  • Soham Phillips

    This amazing powerhouse from Ribera del Duero. Tinto Pesquera Reserva 2012 - Bodegas Alejandro Fernández. Decanting is advised 👌🍷 delicious cherry, vanilla, leather and cederbox with cigars. Milk chocolat, forrest floor, laurel. Great lenght and depth Amazing wine!

  • Gregor Jagermeister

    90 pts Given the quality of the Crianza I really was delighted to find this Reserva, needs way more time to fully flower however, still very enjoyable for me now. The Crianza is ready now, but this shows sleeping intensity and great future potential and longevity, wait a few years however.

    Typical earthy red fruit with good use of oak, dusty vanilla. Weighty, full with a long finish, it will be a star in the future.
