Condado de Haza is located in the province of Burgos, known for its rocky soils and cooler sub-climate. It has a different soil type and higher elevation than its sister property Pesquera, and the microclimate here is tempered by its proximity to the river. Hot days drive the ripeness, while the cold nights maintain high acidity, resulting in fleshy wines that nonetheless remain fresh and sappy. Where Pesquera’s wines are fine, compact, and bloody, those from Condado de Haza are typically plump, more textural and have more rugged structures.
The winemaking here largely mimics that at Pesquera: late harvesting by hand; natural fermentation; vinification by parcel; 18 months in barrique; and bottling without filtration.
