“Palladius was the Roman author who continued Columella’s work, so a fitting name for the white wine that Sadie said he would never make. The grapes come from five vineyards in the Paardeberg mountains, all on sloping sites, 70% bushvines, all unirrigated. A blend of Chenin Blanc, Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Viognier and Chardonnay. 22 barrels made, unfiltered, unfined. Intense, perfumed with peaches and pear, and then a wonderfully creamy white-almond nuttiness. So very creamy, yet with a lemon tang and soft wild sage to lift and sharpen. Luscious, tactile and tense. Long and pure.” Tamlyn Currin, jancisrobinson.com

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.
