Bottle Description

Viña Pomal is the flagship label of Bodegas Bilbaínas’. Established in 1901, Bodegas Bilbaínas is one of the oldest estates and the oldest bottler in Rioja. They have the largest vineyard holding in Rioja Alta and are one of few estates in Rioja to have its own vineyards surrounding the winery. Viña Pomal has a long history with the UK and is a quality reference point for classic Reserva wines from the Rioja Alta. It celebrated its centenary in 2008 and was reputed to be the favourite Rioja of Winston Churchill. In the 1940s, Viña Pomal was bottled in London at Charing Cross.
The Tempranillo is vinified in a very traditional way; the grapes are destemmed and crushed and the must undergoes a moderately long maceration. Once alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are completed, the wine is aged for 18 months in American oak barrels. During this time, the wine is racked two or three times, clarifying it naturally, followed by ageing in bottles for two more years. Ruby-red, the nose shows intense red fruit with ageing notes of truffle and vanilla.
