Garnacha Evodia Bodegas San Alejandro

REGION: Aragon Spain


VITICULTURE: Conventional


ABV: 14.5%

INFO: Bodegas San Alejandro is a leading Garnacha specialist based in the heart of the Calatayud appellation in Aragon, Northern Spain.

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 altitude, ranging from 800 to 1,000 metres elevation. The extreme climate of hot days and cool evenings promotes a long, ripening period concentrating the flavours and aromatic complexity of the grapes.

Post fermentation maceration lasted for seven days using the topping-up technique, 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.

An elegant expression of Garnacha with effortless notes of raspberry, sweet and sour cherry laced with distinctive minerality. Smooth with a savoury note on the palate, this is full of finesse.
