Overview

Once called Arom for Fernando Mora’s last name spelled backward, Altas Parcelas, as the name would suggest, is a blend of all of the parcels Fernando has chosen from the vast collection of vines tended by Bodegas San Alejandro. These vineyards are over 50 years old, 100% head-pruned Garnacha, and planted at elevations greater than 700m. The soils range from sandy slate and quartzite soils to limestone and clay. This cuvĂ©e, like all the others that Fernando makes at Bodegas San Alejandro, is picked by hand, includes at least 50% whole clusters, and is fermented and aged in vessels that do not alter the innate character of these mountain Garnachas. In the case of Altas Parcelas, 100% concrete tanks.
