Punctum is a young and dynamic Winery located in Pinto, Madrid. They use state of the art modern techniques alongside traditional farming practices to get the most from their vineyards. Certified organic and using biodynamic practices the family have a strong connection with the land they cultivate. They understand the importance of working with their environment and not against it.
The Fernández family were grocers in Madrid when they decided to set this biodynamic estate up from scratch. Their objective was always to make accessible, easy to drink biodynamic wines and what they’ve achieved in 10 years is nothing short of impressive. High on a gently rolling plateau they built a purpose made winery cleverly laid out to facilitate collecting the grapes and making and storing the wine as efficiently as possible.
Punctum comes from Latin meaning ‘point’, ‘transit point’ or ‘crossroad’. Their vineyard is located on a crossroad. It’s the point where two old Roman roads meet. Nowadays, one of them is a Vereda (sidewalk or path) where flocks of sheep go through from Jaen until the Pyrenees. Family run, founded by three siblings: Jesús, Ruth and Cristina. For years, they worked to achieve their dream of producing quality organic and biodynamic wines!
This spicy Viognier shows typical citrus fruit and floral aromas which has made it immensely popular. In the mid 60s only 8 hectares of Viognier were cultivated (in the Rhône Valley) but it’s now a rising star worldwide and rightly so. This biodynamically produced example is characteristically light, soft and aromatic with delicate stone fruit flavours and gentle acidity. Silky in texture so great with Southeast Asian food to balance out spice and aromatics.
