“The majority of the fruit for this wine is sourced from mature 23 year old vines with the balance coming from 12-14 year old vines. The fruit is hand picked, chilled and then hand sorted before a gentle de –stemming. Individual parcels are kept separate and fermented in a number of different ways including open fermenters, closed fermenters and short and long post fermentation maceration.  After this the wine was racked into French oak where it was matured for 12 months. The 2011 L.T.Cf. shows the benefit of another outstanding vintage in Margaret River. It’s very much in style with its soft-easy drinkability, medium-body, ripe cherry pastille and mulberry flavours, and gentle grip on the finish. The smooth tannin structure giving the wine the capacity to age a further 10 years or more.”  Producer’s Notes

  • 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.

    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.
