Bodegas Vinessens Benimaquia Tinajas


Country: Spain

Region: Alicante

Grapes: Moscatel d'Alejandria, Merseguera

Vintage: 2016

From the same stable as Tragolargo and El Carro, this is a blend Moscato d'Alessandria and Merseguera from 50 to 70 year old vines planted next to the Mediterranean in Alicante. It spends 6 months on skins in large amphora before bottling without sulphur. 

Spicy and intense with burnt citrus, wild herb and sea spray aromas and a gentle tannic grip on the palate, softened by the porous clay of the amphora.
