Characteristics of Las Rocas de San Alejandro Garnacha

Las Rocas de San Alejandro Garnacha is a red wine produced by the Bodegas San Alejandro winery in Miedes de Aragón (Zaragoza), D.O. Calatayud.

Bodegas San Alejandro was founded in 1962 in Miedes de Aragón (Zaragoza). It was named after St Alejandro, whose remains are in the 17th-century Mudejar style Franciscan Convent in Miedes.

This project, which began thanks to the enthusiasm and effort of a group of winegrowers, is now a benchmark in the region for the production and marketing of wines of the highest quality. It is distinguished by its good work both in the vineyards and in the production of its wines, with the aim of maintaining and improving the standard of living of its members and workers to promote the rural environment and enable employment for future generations.

Thanks to its partners, Bodegas San Alejandro has a great diversity of vineyards, most of them of a considerable age, at altitudes ranging from 700 to 1,100 meters, with soils of black and red slate, rocks and clays. A wide range of terroirs that allow them to obtain the best grapes for each type of wine.

Las Rocas de San Alejandro Garnacha is a red wine made with Garnacha Tinta from vineyards that are between 40 and 60 years old, located more than 800 meters above sea level on very rocky slate soils.

Harvesting is performed by hand. Once in the cellar, the grapes ferment in stainless steel tanks for 20-25 days at 24ºC with their skins. A pre-maceration is performed for 10 days and a post-maceration for 21 days. 30% of the wine remains in American and French oak barrels for 10 months.

Tasting notes Las Rocas de San Alejandro Garnacha

Las Rocas de San Alejandro Garnacha 2016 is a juicy and fruity red wine with structure. This vintage stands out for its intensity both in the nose and on the palate. Aromas of fresh red fruit, with notes of Mediterranean herbs and a spicy touch. On the palate it is silky, lively, and very long-lasting.

Designation of Origin D.O. Calatayud

Winery San Alejandro

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.
