Winemaker Isaac Fernandez brings more than 25 years of winemaking experience to his latest, and namesake project. As the nephew of Mariano Garcia (the winemaker for Vega Sicilia), one could say that Isaac comes by his talent naturally. Using his network of relationships he sources fruit from superior, older vine vineyards in northern Spain. The fruit is handpicked and destemmed prior to vinification. Isaac’s philosophy is simple, “I try to respect the identity of the vineyards and of the grapes with which I work.

Tasting notes
Matured for eight months in oak barrels, the wine offers aromas of red cherry with notes of mint and earth. Silky and inviting flavors of wild berry cassis and cocoa are supported by fine grained tannins and earthy minerality.

Wine maker notes
Produced from 100% Tinta del Pais vines between 60 to 80 years old planted in a single vineyard with a great variety of soils from clay at the bottom of the slope to gravelly sand at the top. Production methods are similar as for the Rios de Tinta with hand harvested fruit sorted prior to de-stemming and light crushing. Cooled pre-fermentation maceration helped to attain a deep color and intense fruit aromas. The wine was fermented with native yeasts and saw additional time with skins versus the Rios de Tinta. There were no other additions except sulphur at bottling. The wine was aged for 8 months in 225 liter barrels prior to assembling the final blend.

Technical notes
(100% Tinta del Pais). Fruit harvested from vines that are an average age of 60 years old that were planted in two different parcels was gently crushed, cold soaked and fermented using native yeast.
