Intensely garnet red in color, the Crianza's juicy notes of ripe berries are accented by soft touches of sweet spice and violet on the palate.
Lying in the coldest region of the four Fernández estates, Condado de Haza is the last winery of the Grupo Pesquera to begin harvest. Each of the vineyard blocks are manually harvested towards the beginning of October and are vinified separately. Alcoholic fermentation takes place between 6-10 days at an average temperature of 20-25°C. All grapes, juice and wine are moved 100% by gravity and the finished wine is aged for 18 months in fine grain, 225-and 300-liter neutral American oak barrels with a light-to-medium toast. Barrels are racked four times during the first twelve months of aging and an additional 2-3 times before bottling. With the Fernández family dedicated to natural winemaking, all wines produced by Alejandro Fernández are neither filtered nor fined before bottling. Upon completion of barrel aging, the Condado de Haza Crianza is then aged for a minimum of six months in bottle before it is released to the market.
