Balancines Punto Rojo

Tasting notes

Picota-cherry colour, purplish rim. Intense, limpid and bright. On the nose it shows very lively and expressive fruit. Wild berries (morello cherries, mulberries, blackberries) and sweet spices. In the mouth it is powerful, smooth and delectable. Lingering finish.

Balancines Punto Rojo

Food pairing notes

Perfect with grilled meats, red tuna, pasta and stews.

Balancines Punto Rojo

Winemaker notes

Punto Rojo means ‘red dot’ in Spanish. Tempranillo and Syrah grapes are used to make Balancines, harvested after careful determination of the right point of maturation according to the kind of wine we are planning to produce. In this case the aim is to preserve the fruity expression of the varieties as much as possible and leave their primary characteristics intact. The wine is made in cement tanks and aged in second-use American oak barriques. This way we achieve minimum interference with the fruit and a refinement that makes Balancines a strong fruity wine, smooth and delicious on the palate.
