Vinification method: It doesn't get much more old school that Bodegas Cueva. Founded in 2000, yet the the original winery is from the 18th century, and not much has changed since then. Mariano Taberner Navarro knows his land intricately and in an almost mystical way translates the Mediterranean essence through his grapes. One of the first to be certified organic (by the Comité de Agricultura Ecológica de la Comunidad Valenciana) he is committed to biodiversity and the health of his vineyards.  This vintage the Tardana got very mature and ripe (which results in little redish-pink dots on the grape skins) and also gives this vintage a slight orange-pink color in the glass. Late manual harvest. Macerated on the skins in the cellar for 5-6 days. 100% native yeast fermentation. After the fermentation, it rests for 3 months in stainless steel tanks with its fine lees. Unfined, unfiltered, no added SO2.
