Tinto Pesquera, the Grupo Pesquera’s flagship property, is known for producing some of the most sought-after Tempranillos in the world, including Millenium Reserva, which is only made in select vintages.

Dark cherry red in color with notes of mixed berries and licorice wrapped in sleek oak, vanilla and roasted coffee, the palate is fine and elegant, with impressive smoothness.

2008 was the vintage of extended grape maturation. Winter was much warmer than usual and incredibly arid - the tail end of an acrimonious dry spell that had begun the previous autumn. Spring began in the same fashion, before the welcomed rain fell during April and May, quenching the drought-ridden vineyards with much-needed water. Summer began with light rain in early August and was cooler than usual, allowing for a slower phenolic maturation of the grape clusters. Harvest, which was delayed until October, was performed in ideal conditions thanks to a cool, dry September, prompting the Tinto Pesquera team to produce its fourth vintage of the esteemed Millenium Reserva.
