Las Rocas de San Alejandro Garnacha Viejos Viñedos is a red wine from the D.O. Calatayud made by the Cooperativa de San Alejandro winery.
This winery was founded in 1962 and is located in Miedes de Aragón (Zaragoza).

Las Rocas de San Alejandro Garnacha Viejos Viñedos is made entirely with the Garnacha variety. The grapes come from vineyards in the Calatayud mountains, planted at an altitude of 800 to 1100 metres.

The vines are very old, aged 60 to 100 years old, and they grow in an extreme climate that results in a very low yield, late ripening and a late harvest.

In this difficult environment, the mountainous rocks on the ground where the vines are planted are actually good for the plants. Their porosity helps the vines to accumulate water and heat reserves. This is why this winery has a whole range of wines called “Las Rocas”.

The Las Rocas de San Alejandro Garnacha Viejos Viñedos harvest takes place during the first and second week of October.

To make the wine, the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 24ºC for 20-25 days with its skins. After fermentation, there is a skin-contact maceration of 21 days.

Finally, this red wine is aged for 12 months in American and French barrels.

When talking about the Las Rocas collection, which this wine is part of, R. Parker said: “This is without doubt the best value for money in Europe that I have tasted in my 25-year career” - The Wine Advocate #152.

The history and legendary Camino de Santiago to Navarra, with the resulting French and Central European cultural influence in the area, influenced in the Middle Ages the tradition of unique wines, centred on the use of the Garnacha Tinta grape variety. The modernisation of wineries, the careful choice of the vineyards, the incorporation of noble varieties, and the commitment of winemakers seeking more flavour instead of alcohol, has led to a new generation of Calatayud wines, which are fine, elegant and very personal.
