Dominio de Punctum – organic & biodynamic wines from Spain
Dominio de Punctum organic and biodynamic wines need to be discovered for their purity of fruit and consistent high quality. This is a selection of White and Rosés from a family-run estate at 800 metres near Las Pedroñeras in La Mancha (around half way between Valencia and Madrid). These wines really are stunning value, and even more so in this Special Offer Case!
Domino de Punctum organic and biodynamic estate is led by Jesus Fernandez, who, together with his sisters Ruth (wine-maker) and Cristina (Biodynamic viticulture & Finance Director!) have developed their parents’ vineyards into an organic and biodynamic Estate and Winery. It is an ideal place to grow quality vines naturally. They do not use any synthetic pesticides, herbicides on the soil, or chemicals in the winery, and all their wines have organic status. Biodynamic is a step further; they gained this added status in 2011. They harvest the grapes at night and their work in the vineyards coupled with careful winemaking produces some brilliant quality, brilliant value wines. All these wines are suitable for vegans and wine lovers seeking lower sulphite wines.
Do biodynamic wines taste better for the price – yes, we believe they do! Both the Viognier and Rosado in this case have finesse at fantastic value.

Tasting Notes will be provided with your wines
Viognier 2021 (3 bottles)
100% Viognier: 13% abv
An exceptional, refreshing Viognier with peach and apricot aromas which invite you to taste! The palate is packed with intense peach, nectarine and tropical fruit, coupled with a light citrus uplift on the finish. This balances the full, complex flavours and the result is a delicious Viognier with a smooth, long finish and excellent balance. If you are fan of Picpoul de Pinet, you should try this Viognier which has a similar flavour spectrum, and a lightly rounded finish.
You could drink it on its own with nibbles and it is a perfect partner to a wide range of foods like shellfish, chicken, pork or rabbit dishes, tagines, Asian dishes and vegetarian dishes with sweet root vegetables.
Rosado 2021 (3 bottles)
50% Garnacha; 50% Bobal: 13% abv
An attractive, pale, blush Rosé with intense aromas of strawberries, raspberries and hints of redcurrants. This new vintage has vibrant strawberry fruit with raspberries and blueberries in the background. This is a fresh, dry, fruity and smooth Rosé with excellent balance. Although very pale in colour it has terrific, full flavours and an excellent prolonged taste.
This is a consistently delicious Rosé that knocks socks off many (more expensive) Provence Rosés. Dominio de Punctum Rosado will hit the spot where other Rosés do not tread!
You could drink this on its own, and it will partner a wide range of foods from fish, chicken to spicy dishes and salads. It is also perfect to drink through the summer and into the Autumn.
