Dominio de Punctum Viognier has peach and apricot aromas with slightly nutty and floral notes which invite you to taste. The palate is packed with intense peach, nectarine and tropical fruit flavours with a light citrus uplift which balances the full, complex flavours with a touch of zestiness. If you enjoy Picpoul de Pinet, you should try this wine as it has a similar flavour spectrum.
We are thrilled with the latest vintage of our most popular white wine. It has a smooth, very long, refreshingly dry and lightly rounded finish. Dominio de Punctum Viognier is a classic, delicious find from a family-run organic estate in the heart of La Mancha. If you haven’t tried this Viognier you should. Many Viognier’s at this price level tend towards being cloying; this wine certainly does not. Viognier from this Bodega has been seen on retail sale in London for in excess of £11! This wine is a true bargain.
It’s not just us that rate this wine highly – read James Suckling (US wine critic) recent review – 90 Points:
“A fresh, peach nose with jasmine and sliced apple. Medium-bodied and textured with a pure expression of flowers and peaches. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Vegan. 90 Points”
Do organic and biodynamic wines taste better for the price – yes, we believe they do! This really is a lovely Viognier with finesse at great value. If you would like to know more about the difference between organic and biodynamic practices, please read our short blog.
About Dominio de Punctum
This wine is made from organically and biodynamicaly grown grapes in the 200 hectare single-estate vineyards at 750 metres near Las Pedroñeras, (around half way between Valenica and Madrid). The Viognier 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; they gained this added status in 2011.
Food match: Terrific aperitif; a very versatile wine which will be excellent with shellfish, Asian and vegetarian dishes.
