Dominio de Punctum Roble 2017 vintage has just arrived and it is very much like the last, incredibly popular, vintage.
Full of intense and spicy blackberry aromas laced with a touch of damsons and vanilla, cedary oak. This is followed by attractive and fresh blackberry and damson fruit flavours with cinnamon spice. A complex wine with layered flavours and it is savoury, with ripe tannins and a great food wine.
A terrific blend, showing complexity and well integrated tannins from its six months in american oak barrels. A stylish, appealing, medium to full-bodied wine with excellent length; a star wine in all respects. This wine is excellent value and will continue to develop and should be drinking well through to 2021.
This leans towards a soft claret in style, whilst retaining Spanish characteristics and is one of our universally popular red wines.
It is made from organically and biodynamically grown grapes in the 200 hectare single-estate vineyards at 750 metres near Las Pedroñeras, (around half way between Valencia 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. What is the difference between organic and biodynamic? Find out more.
