An excellent gateway into the world of Orange wines: pale orange in colour, with tropical fruit, hazelnut, apple and dried orange rind on the nose. Well structured with sweet tannins and good acidity.

100% Chardonnay. Organic vines planted in 2005. Night harvested and cold macerated before fermenting with the skins for 12 days, leading to the colour change

I'm sure there's a good reason why the name of this wine makes reference to Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues under the Sea ... but it escapes me.

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. 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.
