When Robert Parker compared Pesquera to Petrus in the Wine Advocate, he sent the reputation, and prices of Fernandez’s wines rocketing. His original Pesquera estate is blessed with some of the finest vineyards in Ribera del Duero, which make his fantastic Crianza, Reserva, Gran Reserva and rare ‘Janus’ cuvees.

The soils at the 65-hectare Pesquera estate are planted entirely to Tempranillo and are perfect for producing high-quality fruit. The alluvial wash from the River Duero has added a gravel top soil to a deep clay and limestone base. The grapes are destemmed, crushed and given a prolonged cold soak before they begin their fermentations. Following that they are aged in a blend of American and French oak barrels, with the Crianza aged for at least 18 months maturation and the Reserva and Gran Reserva spending at least 30 months in barrel before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.

The wines are deep and fruity with muscular oak and extraordinary power.
