Producer Note
Bodegas San Alejandro is a leading Garnacha specialist based in the heart of the
Calatayud appellation in Aragon, Northern Spain. The cooperative was founded in
1962 and today it has 150 growers, with 1,200 plots covering 950 hectares of
vineyard. Garnacha has adapted to suit the extreme natural conditions of the area;
the vineyards are situated at elevations of up to 1,100 metres, with contrasting hot
days and cool nights. The elevation provides good air circulation, promoting
vineyard health which has enabled the vines to be traditionally cultivated in a very
natural way and with limited use of treatments. From 2019, Bodegas San Alejandro is
converting to organic status.


Vineyard
The grapes come from dry farmed Garnacha vines, from various plots surrounding
the village of Miedes. The extreme climate of hot days and cool evenings promotes a
long, ripening period concentrating the flavours and aromatic complexity of the
grapes. The soils are varied: limestone, red clay and colluvial rocks, with each terroir
imparting subtle complexity to the wine. The vines are a combination of traditionally
bush trained vines and Vertical Shoot Positioning (VSP) training method. The
vineyards are farmed with respect for the environment; the soils are ploughed and
the vines are cultivated sustainably. In conversion to organic cultivation.


Winemaking
The grapes were destemmed and the uncrushed grapes were macerated for two
weeks at low temperatures to extract colour, aromatics and flavour. Fermentation
took place with a neutral selected yeast. The wine went through malolactic
conversion in underground concrete tanks, with lees contact which added texture,
before being matured in stainless steel and concrete tanks for three months.


Tasting Note
An approachable wine, with aromas of vibrant, juicy raspberry complemented by
mineral and herbal overtones with a touch of vanilla. Fruity, with a lovely balancing
freshness through to a moreish finish.
