“Garnacha Rock is the expression of a centenary vineyard with a north orientation. “Sloping granite vineyard, with very low production vines and an exceptional personality.”

WINEMAKING

HARVEST

Manual harvest in perforated boxes. Weight per box between 15 and 18 kilos. Classification of clusters in the vineyard itself and selection table.

VINIFICATION

Vinification in steel tank. Partial destemming of grapes and fermentation with native yeasts. Very light pumpover and “bazuqueos”. Long maceration in search of great extraction. Once the fermentation is finished, it remains in tank for the time determined by the vintage. Pressed in pneumatic press. Separation of press wine based on tasting.

AGEING

Two 500 liter barrels for at least 24 months. The length of aging is determined by weekly tastings that are complemented by technical analysis.

VITICULTURE

La forma de cultivo en todos nuestros viñedos es la Agricultura Tradicional de la comarca.

The way of cultivation in all our vineyards is the Traditional Agriculture of the region.

No type of systemic product is used for pests. Occasionally, if the year is very rainy, the only pest that can develop is powdery mildew, which is combated with powdered sulfur. As has been done historically. Other pests are not observed in the area. In 2021, a single preventive treatment was applied at the beginning of sprouting.

The fertilizers are organic with a mixture of manure from different animals.

Pruning is entirely manual. The pruning remains are crushed and left in the vineyard to increase the texture of the soil.

In 2021, the yield per hectare was 1,600 kilograms. This gives us a yield of 940 grams/strain.

TASTING

VIEW

Cherry red wine of great liveliness, with light violet hues in a thin layer. It is clean and shiny, with a medium layer. When shaking the glass it shows an abundant alcoholic tear that stains the glass.

AROMAS

Forest fruits, sour cherries, blackberries. Reflective mineral notes of granite soil. Discreet contribution of barrel, spicy nuances of vanilla, cinnamon and some black pepper.

TASTE

Well balanced in the mouth, perfect acidity to compensate for its alcohol content. High persistence after the drink, leaving lasting memories retronasally.

AS IN ALL WINES FROM BODEGAS VALLEYGLESIAS, OUR GOAL IS FINENESS, THE EXPRESSION OF THE TERROIR AND RESPECT FOR THE VINTAGE.
