  1. Isaac Fernandez Acentor Garnacha 2016
    Isaac Fernandez Acentor Garnacha 2016
    Isaac Fernández Selección is a unique collaborative venture between two individuals - Isaac Fernández Montaña one of Spain's most acclaimed winemakers and Aurelio Cabestrero. Working with old vine fruit and from some of the oldest DO's in Spain they are bringing together a wealth of experience. It's a shame this is the only wine coming into the country because it is a belter!

    Dark violet with spicey accented cherry and dark berry aromas. There is a touch of cola and vanilla  that sits nicely against the fresh dark fruit. Tons of energy and it seems to sizzle along in the mouth, offering sweet red and blue fruit and spicecake flavors. There is a bit of tannic grip and that touch of wild herbs that leads into a smokey finish where the tannins melt back into the sweet fruits. This is a great example of what a bit of thought and effort can bring to a wine that overdelivers in spades!

  2. Legado del Moncayo Garnacha 2019
    Legado del Moncayo Garnacha 2019

    Isaac Fernandez works in a number of regions and with several varieties, but his standout wines come from the old Garnacha bush-vines grown in the highest, rockiest, iron-laden soils of DO Campo de Borja. Isaac is nephew of Mariano Garcia, famous as head winemaker at Vega Sicilia in the late 20th century. Mariano is patron of the Mauro wine group which he founded after leaving Vega. Isaac commenced his career with Mariano, working 20 years at Mauro before stretching his wings as a consultant from 2005 (in conjunction with a US importer, Aurelio Cabestrero). Multiple partnerships and consultancies have come (and gone).

  3. Cepa X Cepa Garnacha 2018
    Cepa X Cepa Garnacha 2018
    This is a real treasure in the Nekeas Valley. Dwarf oak trees in the upper regions of the valley concealed small areas of Garnacha vineyards over 60 years old. The age of the vines are a result of years and years of selection based on the experience of wine growers who knew nothing about DNA, but knew what type of grape that ripened well in this extreme climate of the region, sometimes very harsh, so they decided to do the same thing that they had done before. They selected the vines that faired best of the years - "Cepa por Cepa" literally means "Vine by vine" and this is they worked.

    They have essentially rescued an invaluable genetic gem that could otherwise have been lost forever and the result is a succulent and vibrant wine. We are thoroughly impressed!

    A rich, juicy red with dried-strawberry, cherry and spice aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied with soft tannins and a savory finish. A beautiful garnacha. Drink now. Screw cap JAMES SUCKLING
