The Rock Hotel,
New Wines coming to the Magnificent Rock Hotel. Our extensive wine list available for your enjoyment in Rock Hotel Reseraunt, Bar Terrace, Lounge Bar and Swimming Pool.
The 2011 PSI is pure Tempranillo from a diversity of small plots of old vineyards in different zones of the Burgos province, always north of the Duero river. It is a bright ruby red, with notes of plums and very well-integrated wood. But what really surprises is the palate: still medium-bodied, somehow austere and lineal, straight rather than round, not showing the warmth of the vintage or alcohol at all. It only shows some toasty notes that are not excessive and that should disappear with a bit of time in the bottle.
The lounge bar is a veritable testimony to Gibraltar’s rich heritage, where the décor depicts photographs and images of the Rock’s colourful past and its days as a fortress defending Britain’s interests in the Mediterranean. Fabulous wine, Traditional afternoon English and Moroccan tea is served in the lounge and is the highpoint for many of the cruise ship visitors who embark in Gibraltar for the day.
The bar opens up onto the much loved Wisteria Terrace which offers an enhanced al fresco venue for all day dining. What more could you ask for on a balmy Mediterranean evening than a relaxing gin and tonic overlooking the bay of Gibraltar and the North African coastline enjoying the enticing fragrances of the surrounding flora?
