100% Airen aged for 24 months in oak then 12 months in bottle.
Lying in the warmest region of the four Fernández estates, the grapes at El Vínculo are the first to be harvested. Each of the leased vineyard blocks are manually harvested towards the beginning of September and are vinified separately. Alcoholic fermentation of the white Airén grapes takes place between 6-10 days at an average temperature of 20-25°C. The finished Alejairén is then aged for 24 months in fine grain, 225- and 300-liter neutral American oak barrels with a light-to-medium toast. 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 Alejairén is then aged for a minimum of twelve months in bottle before it is released to the market.
