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.
Vineyards between 40 – 60 years old bush trained with natural drainage and an average yield of 3500 kg/ha. The vineyard is located in the most representative villages of the DO Calatayud with the characteristic gravel soils (colluvial rock with red clay).
Fermentation at a controlled temperature between 22°C and 24°C. Fermentation-maceration during 15 days in concrete vats adjusting the treatments of maceration (pumping-over, delestage and skin contact time) to the features of each batch of grapes and its evolution during vinification. 80% of the total blend ages for one year in concrete vats and the remaining 20% in barrels of several uses.
Rich in spicy aromas and with a delicate mineral texture, well structured, with shades of oak. Round tannins and a rich fruity palate.
