Viña Pomal reflects in this wine the best viticultural tradition of the Rioja Alta in the production of white wines of great freshness and balance. After a hundred years of history, producing wines of great quality and consolidated prestige, we can add the unbeatable situation of our own vineyard in the municipality of Haro.
A pale yellow with slight greyish steel hues.
A rich aromatic bouquet. Notes of white fruit, citrus and fennel with a light toastiness from aging in oak.
Friendly and fresh on the palate, transmits the balance of the fruit with certain notes of salinity. Good length and volume provide the fineness of a single area where we work these strains of white.
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.
White Viña Pomal is made from the region’s traditional varietals: Viura and Malvasía.
White Viña Pomal is made from the region’s traditional varietals: Viura and Malvasía. After destemming, the skins are lightly macerated (6 hours) and then pressed. The free running must is fermented in new barrels of American oak and French oak (50/50) at a temperature of 15-18 °C and left 4 months in contact with the lees. Helped by gentle stirrings of the lees the wine gains incomplexity and volume on the palate.
The estate, located on alluvial soils from the Ebro River, which it overlooks, is one of the first vineyards of the D.O. Rioja.
The estate, located on alluvial soils from the Ebro River, which it overlooks, is one of the first vineyards of the D.O. Rioja that we come across as we cross the “Conchas de Haro” ravine. This zone where Atlantic and Mediterranean climates converge lies on the frontier of winegrowing. It is here that our varietals develop their finesse and aromatic expression to the utmost. Soil: deep, fresh alluvial soils, with lots of pebbles which ensure ripening. A loamy-sandy texture. Varietals: the Viura constitutes the base wine contributing body and subtleness to this offering. The Malvasía gives it lift, adding freshness and fragrance to the wine.
Rioja is marked by a dry, mild winter. Good spring weather and a warm summer, coupled with an absence of rain during harvest, ensures top quality grapes in excellent conditions.
