Characteristics of Benimaquía Tinajas
Benimaquía Tinajas is a white wine from the D.O. Alicante produced by the Bernabé Navarro winery. This wine is a blend of two different grape varieties: Moscatel de Alejandría and Merseguera.
The grapes used to produce this wine grow in the Mata Natural Park. The vineyards are cultivated on sandy soils of natural origin, characterised by the fact that the vines manage to survive and avoid the phylloxera outbreak.
The vines are cultivated with the maximum respect for the natural and vegetative cycles, with the intention of having as little human intervention as possible. The winemaking and vinification process is also carried out in a natural manner.
Benimaquía Tinajas is fermented in clay pots with their own skins for 6 months using their own yeasts. Sulphur is not added to the wine. The profile is a slightly orange wine due to the maceration with the skins, which gives it a slightly tannic profile.

There is no doubt that the Monastrell grape variety has become a fashionable grape variety. This region is home to over half a dozen cooperatives, which have been at the forefront of a wine revolution, making wines that are respectful to the local culture the area, cultivating vines with care, selecting only the best fruit and producing wines that faithfully express character of the terroir. These wines are easy to identify, due to the fact the estate or vineyard from which they came from is usually printed on their label. Also, their authenticity and quality can be guaranteed by the DO Alicante, which not only certifies the farms, but also everything posted on the wines labeling.
