20000 Leguas Skin Contact Orange Wine 2022
20000 Leguas Skin Contact Orange Wine
This is the perfect introduction to orange/skin contact wines! Grapes are harvested at night to retain freshness, then fermented on the skins and left to macerate for 10-15 days to extract colour, flavour and tannins. Pale orange in colour with aromas of tropical fruit, hazelnut and apple. The palate is well structured with sweet tannins and good acidity which complement the complex fruit flavours of dried orange rind, crystallised ginger, jasmine, dried apricots and a subtle nuttiness on the finish.
Punctum is a young and dynamic team. Their office is located in Pinto, Madrid, where their Logistic, Administration and Marketing departments can be found.
Their winery team in Cuenca is in charge of the wine production. These are wines made with particular care and latest state-of-the-art techniques, with the added value of organic and biodynamic agriculture in a land where viticulture tradition has been present for centuries.
In the province of Cuenca near central Spain, the vineyard and estate are located in an area where wine culture has been around for decades. It is believed that winemaking originated here in Roman times, and it quickly developed during the medieval period.
They sit in an altitude of 800 meters above sea level, which ensures intense aromas, freshness and deep colours for our wines. The soil, clay-based and rich in limestone, helps retaining water, essential for the health of the vines.
They reap the benefits of a continental-mediterranean climate, which brings plenty of sunlight hours to our vineyard and ripens the grapes easily. However, during the night the temperature drops and creates a sharp contrast that heightens the aromas and flavors of the wine.
