  • Reminiscent of the old mountain Garnacha vineyards, this delivers complex aromas of blackberry, plum, fig, and thyme, with subtle nuances of balsamic and oak spice. With smooth tannins, the full palate is framed by an intense concentration of fruit through to a harmoniously balanced finish.

The grapes come from a selection of plots with old Garnacha vines that are over 60 years old, which produce low yields of concentrated fruit. The vineyards are located in the hills of the Sierra Santa Cruz where the soils are quartzite and slate, which offer heat-retaining properties during the cooler nights of this hilly location. The vines are goblet-trained bush vines, which are dry-farmed and are cultivated following sustainable philosophies, such as using limited amounts of sulfur for fungus control. The grapes are manually harvested at optimal ripeness.

Winery

Bodegas San Alejandro is a leading Garnacha specialist based in the heart of the Calatayud appellation in Aragon, Northern Spain. The cooperative was founded in 1962 and today it has 150 growers, with 1,200 plots covering 950 hectares of vineyard. Garnacha has adapted to suit the extreme natural conditions of the area; the vineyards are situated at elevations of up to 1,100 meters, with contrasting hot days and cool nights. The elevation provides good air circulation, promoting vineyard health which has enabled the vines to be traditionally cultivated in a very natural way and with limited use of treatments. From 2019, Bodegas San Alejandro is converting to organic status.
