Dominio de Punctum family owned – organic – value for money
Located in the northern reaches of the La Mancha region, just to the south of Madrid, Dominio de Punctum was one of our most exciting finds back in 2017. Unlike many wineries in the La Mancha region, the team at Punctum only produce wines using fruit grown on their own estate. Their entire operation is certified organic and they farm a portion of their land following biodynamic principles. Situated in the town of Las Pedroñeras, the Fernandez family preside over the estate, where their winery sits proudly overlooking the vines. The proximity of the winery is a key advantage when it comes to producing wines that possess optimum freshness in what is typically an extremely hot region. The ‘Finca Fabian’ range is 100% organic and showcases 3 key grape varieties – Verdejo, Garnacha and Tempranillo.
This alluringly pale Rosado is produced using Garnacha, which is harvested at night and cold macerated before fermentation, in order to preserve as much freshness as possible. Perfect for summer drinking or for pairing with pasta and shellfish dishes.
