Winemaker's Tasting Notes
The only white wine made by the Fernández family, Alejairén draws its name from the combination of its creator Alejandro and its grape variety Airén. The 2015 vintage has rich flavors of fresh apricot, vanilla bean, honey and crème brûlée in both the nose and on the palate.
95 Points - Ian Blackburn
"A rich, complex white, that continues to develop; dense gold color and texture; with toasted orange peal, herb and fig spread, butterscotch pudding, this pushes limits and finds exotic space to occupy, thrive and will amaze with an abundance of acidity to carry it for another decade plus. Now at 7 years of age (in 2022), it has achieved a level of integration and manifested its destiny into being a white wine for red wine lovers. Color 14/15 (exotic), Aroma 24/25, Body 24/25, Overall 33/35 - bold, ambitious, and beyond category.
