Ederra Verdejo is a young and modern wine that aims to extract the full potential of this autochthonous variety with 10 centuries of antiquity: Verdejo.
An intense wine with prominent Verdejo varietal aromas (mint, fennel) underlain with citrus notes and tropical fruit (mango).
A wine with a great deal of freshness, pleasant and expressive on the palate.
Founded in 1901 in the town of Haro’s legendary Station Quarter, Bodegas Bilbaínas is the longest-standing bottling winery in Rioja. It also has the most extensive underground cellars in the region and a greater area of vineyards than any other winery in the town: 250 hectares of high quality vines, which supply the winery with its own grapes, ensuring that they can be processed quickly without losing their qualities. Viña Pomal is its flagship brand, which embodies the Rioja Alta's best winemaking tradition. These are exceptional wines that have remained faithful to the classic style of authentic Rioja from the outset.
Ederra seeks out wines with full fruitiness and freshness, essential in Verdejo wines from Rueda.

Traditional winemaking: after destemming and crushing the must is macerated along with the skins for 4 hours. It is fermented at 14-16 ºC to preserve the Verdejo varietal’s full aromas. The wine is then left with the lees to refine the mouthfeel, after which it is blended with 10% Viura. This tones down the characteristic bitterness of Verdejo rendering a fresh wine that is very easy on the palate.
