Appealing blend of Tempranillo and Petit Verdot made from organic grapes, using biodynamic practices. It has raspberry and blackberry aromas laced with a touch of cedary oak. Attractive cherry and blackcurrant fruit flavours with good structure and a smooth, savoury finish. This is a a terrific blend, showing some complexity and well integrated tannins from its six months in oak barrels. A stylish, appealing, medium-bodied wine with excellent length.
A lighter style red wine from Spain that is quite like a soft claret with great finesses. Excellent value.
This wine is made from organically and biodynamically grown grapes in the 150 hectare single-estate vineyards at 750 metres near Las Pedroñeras, (around half way between Valenica and Madrid). The grapes are night-harvested to retain their freshness.
After 8 generations as growers, in 2005 a new generation of the Fernandez family led by Jesus and his sister (and wine-maker) Ruth founded the organic Estate and Winery. With a continental climate and sandy, loam soil rich in limestone it is an ideal place to grow quality vines naturally. Dominio de Punctum 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, working with the natural rhythms of nature in a way which creates greater sustainability of the soils and the land for the longer term. They gained this added status in 2011.
