Dominio de Punctum Rosado is an attractive, refined blush rosado from made from organic grapes. It has wild strawberry and raspberry aromas with hints of watermelon; these are followed by bags of strawberry and raspberry fruit flavours. This is a fresh, elegant and structured wine with excellent balance. Although pale in colour it has terrific, full flavours and overall lightness of touch. We can see why this wine won a Gold Medal at an International Organic Competition.
This is a consistently delicious Rosé that knocks socks off many (more expensive) Provence Rosés. Dominio de Punctum wines go from strength to strength!
This wine 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 Valenica and Madrid). 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. 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. All their wines have organic status. Biodynamic is a step further where activites (for example, pruning) occur in line with the lunar calendar, but fundamentally it is about putting more back into the vineyard and sustainability for the future; they gained this added status in 2011.
Food match: A perfectly poised aperitif and an excellent match with fish and chicken dishes.
