The 2016 Condado de Haza Crianza has lovely aromas of crushed berries, cola and chocolate follow through to a medium body, integrated and refined tannins and a flavourful finish. This crianza is complex and beautiful. Consistently outstanding red wine. The Condado de Haza Crianza is a red wine from the Ribera del Duero region prepared by Condado de Haza, a winery belonging to Familia Fernández Rivera.
The Condado de Haza is the sister property to Pesquera, both planted by the pioneering Alejandro Fernandez, who died earlier this year. The vineyard was planted with tempranillo between 1986 and 1989, and it’s these mature vines that give birth to this robust red. That said, it’s more about concentration than brawn, with heavenly perfumes of raspberry and mulberry and a whiff of mocha chocolate. Intensity defines the palate with sarsaparilla, liquorice and refined tannins to conclude.
The 2016 Condado de Haza Crianza is best paired with Stews, Roasts, Game animals, Stew, Semi-mature Cheese, Grilled red meats, and Roasted Pork.
