Isaac Fernández Selección is a unique collaborative venture between two individuals – Isaac Fernández Montaña one of Spain’s most acclaimed winemakers and Aurelio Cabestrero whose vision and commitment helped bring Spanish wines to the forefront in the United States. They work at rediscovering forgotten regions of superior terroir and maximizing the potential from old vines of indigenous grape varieties in a number of regions.
The ancient winegrowing area of Rueda was the second region they produced wine from. The local Verdejo grape offers the ability to create vibrant, crisp, citrus and herb scented white wines that exhibit a textural richness rarely found in Spanish whites. The resulting wine, Egeo was first bottled in 2011 and is equally well suited for use as an aperitif as to pair with shellfish or rice dishes.
