The grapes were destemmed, and the uncrushed fruit was fermented with a neutral selected yeast, lasting 20 days. Soft extraction techniques were used to obtain colour, flavour and structure. Post-fermentation maceration lasted for seven days using the topping-up method, which obtained a more balanced extraction and reduced the risk of oxidation in the grapes. 20% of the blend underwent malolactic conversion in barrel; 10% was matured in second-use French oak barrels to impart subtle complexity, while 90% was aged in concrete tanks to retain the purity of fruit.

This is an elegant expression of Garnacha, with effortless notes of raspberry, sweet, and sour cherry laced with distinctive minerality. It is smooth with a savoury note on the palate and full of finesse.

The grapes come from old Garnacha vines, with an average yield of 4,000 kilograms per hectare. The soils are varied: calcareous, clay and shale, with each terroir imparting subtle complexity to the wine. The vines are grown at high altitudes, ranging from 800 to 1,000 metres. The extreme climate of hot days and cool evenings promotes a long, ripening period, concentrating the flavours and aromatic complexity of the grapes. The vineyards are farmed with respect for the environment; the soils are ploughed, and canopy management takes place by hand, with laterals removed manually. Limited sulphur treatments are used, and the grapes are manually harvested.

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 and enabling the vines to be traditionally cultivated naturally and with limited treatments. Since 2019, Bodegas San Alejandro has been converting to organic status.
