"Stylish and complex, the inviting bouquet shows dark berry, warm spice, nutmeg and game notes, followed by a finely flowing palate that's juicy and supple. Beautifully rounded and textured with layers of polished tannins, finishing long and pleasingly dry."
- Sam Kim; The Wine Orbit
One of the most distinctive wines in the world, Las Rocas is a wine made of Garnacha that tries to represent the performance of this variety in two subzones of Calatayud (Sierra Vicort and Sierra Santa Cruz), looking for a style of wine of complete phenolic maturity and soft tannins after its ageing in tanks and barrels. Rich in spicy aromas and with a delicate mineral texture, well structured, with shades of oak. Round tannins and a rich fruity palate.
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 metres, 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.
