Each visit to Bodegas San Alejandro presents many exciting discoveries, but Deseya may be the most revealing. Having spent the last decade converting all their 1000 hectares of vineyards to certified organic farming, it made sense that San Alejandro started close to home in Miedes del Aragón, where their cellars are located. The vineyards on the south-facing slopes of the Sierra de Vicort are planted on gravelly soils of iron-rich, red clay-limestone soils and areas of chalky-clay limestone. Compared to their vineyards on slate, these sites offer a more insinuating style of Garnacha redolent with cherry fruit, ethereal floral aromas, and pinpoint-focused fine tannins.
