Viento Aliseo Tempranillo Petit Verdot Dominio de Punctum 2018/2019
£10.95 per bottle
This blend of Tempranillo and Petit Verdot is a beautiful ruby red in colour. The nose is pronounced with aromas of blackberries and hints of violets. The palate is full and smooth with notes of blackberries, redcurrants and a touch of sweet spice. Well integrated tannins add structure to the wine which finishes long and fruity.
Ideal with roasted meats especially game such as pheasants.
The great plain of La Mancha, to the south of Madrid and east of Toledo, represents the largest viticultural area of Spain. The climate is arid, extreme in both summer and winter, tempered by strong prevailing winds. The widely planted white Arien grape variety is slowly losing favour to Tempranillo, Shiraz and Garnacha and the old wineries are giving way to gleaming modern facilities heralding a revolution for the region`s winemaking.
Dominio de Punctum is situated in the town of Las Pedroneras at the north end of La Mancha. It was founded in 2005 and run by the Fernandez family, the estate currently includes over 150 hectares of vineyards. The winery is located adjacent to the vineyards allowing to keep the maximum quality in the production of the whites, reds, young and aged wines. Since the beginning they have focused on organic and biodynamic production.
