2011 Viñedos Culturales "Tinajas de la Mata" Alicante

SKU #1139377

Proprietor Rafa Bernabé has been farming and producing wines in the Alicante region for a while now, having developed a solid reputation locally for his Monastrell wines in particular. Recently, though, Bernabé has become enamored with both traditional farming methods of indigenous grape varieties, as well as ancestral methods of wine production (for example, Rafa experiments with amphora for a few of his wines, and was recently visiting Georgia for a symposium on the topic). These are wines made from organic grapes, fermented with native yeasts, with zero to minimal levels of SO2 added prior to bottling. All of the wines under his Viñedos Culturales label are not merely original or outside the box for Spain (though they are certainly, at times, just that) but often times delicious, bright and gluggable in a way that makes them worth discovering. "Tinajas" are amphorae, and if you were wondering whether this is Rafa's orange wine, you wondered correctly. Muscat de Alejandria and Merseguera grapes combine to make this fascinating orange wine bottling. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
