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 is one of our most exciting finds for 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.
The 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.
Their Tempranillo highlights everything that a Spanish red should offer at this price point – juicy fruit, soft round tannins, a fresh palate and a deliciously long finish.
Of particular interest is their ‘Espumoso’. Made in a similar style to Prosecco, this blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay & Viura is the perfect aperitif and ideal for all manner of celebrations and parties!
