Dehesa la Granja launches new image
Seventeen years after its first launch, Alejandro Fernández’s Zamora bodega has now launched a new label for its wines. Dehesa la Granja 2007, now available on the market, is the wine chosen to flaunt the new image.
The Fernández Rivera family maintain a firm commitment to tradition, personified in the gentle tones of the label’s classic watercolour painting which forefronts the entrance to the Zamora estate.
The wine chosen for the launch is Dehesa la Granja’s new 2007 vintage. A wine which is characterised by its long ageing process of 24 months in American oak, and 12 months in the bottle. A rich wild-cherry red in colour with an intense maroon border. On the nose it boasts aromas of ripe black fruit preserve – cranberry and plumb – and a pleasant finish with balsamic notes. In the mouth it is powerful, meaty, balanced with smooth, sweet tannins. Its loaded fruitiness and its long aftertaste are evidence of its careful and exquisite ageing process in American oak barrels.
All the wines made at Dehesa la Granja sleep peacefully in oak barrels under the vaulted ceilings of its centuries-old underground cellar. This underground cave is the ideal place in which to age wine, with over three-hundred years of history and despite respecting its quintessential past, the bodega has the unmistakable personal touch of the Fernández family. The bodega’s select wine, Dehesa 14 is now also available – a wine that boasts the accumulated aromas and flavours encapsulated in the grapes harvested in 1998-.
