Tasting notes - 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.


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.


In 2017, a spring frost affected the vineyards, which significantly reduced yields and it

was the smallest crop in the last decade. However the fruit harvested was full of

concentrated flavours, ripe tannins and had reached excellent maturity when picked.


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 sulphur for fungus control. The grapes

are manually harvested at optimal ripeness
