Dominio de Punctum, Skin Contact Orange Wine, 20,000 Leguas is an organic orange/skin contact wine which is an ideal introduction for new potential connoisseurs of the genre. Grapes are handpicked under the night sky to safeguard their freshness in the cooler temperatures. They are then macerated on the skins for 10-15 days to achieve the desired colour, flavour and tannin structure. It has a faint orange hue, with aromas of exotic fruit, hazelnut, and apple. The tannins are sweet while the acidity is balancing, intensifying the complex flavours of candied orange peel, crystallised ginger, jasmine, apricot, and a subtle nuttiness on the finish.

About the Region and Producer
The vast La Mancha plain south of Madrid and east of Toledo is the largest wine-producing region in Spain. Its arid climate, with marked seasonal swings moderated by strong winds, has led to the extensive planting of the Arien white grape variety, though this is being supplanted by Tempranillo, Shiraz and Garnacha, as traditional wineries are being replaced by modern facilities, signifying a transformation of 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.
