Characteristics of Viña Pomal Blanco
Viña PomalBlanco is a white wine from the D.O La Rioja produced by Bodegas Bilbaínas. This wine is a blend of 2 grape varieties; Viura (70%) and Malvasía (30%).
The grapes used to make Viña Pomal Blanco come from an estate that is influenced by atlantic and mediterranean climates. This climate helps the grapes gain strong expressive aromas. The soil where there grapes are grown are alluvial, deep and fresh, abundant in silt loam boulders.
After the harvest, the grapes are quickly transported to the winery so they do not lose their characteristics. The grapes are destemmed and macerate with their skins for 6 hours before being pressed. The free-run juice that is obtained then ferments in new french and american oak barrels at a temperture between 15 - 18ºC. The wine remains in these containers for 4 months on its lees. During this time, various battonages are carried out.
Viña Poma is one of the brands that form part of Bodegas Bilbaínas, the oldest bottling company in La Rioja that now spans over 250 hectares of land.
La Rioja is one of the most important areas of wine production in the world. It has a long history, and exceptional soils and climates. From the Tempranillo and Grenache varieties they make great red wines that are masterfully aged which demonstrates the experience passed from generation to generation.
The century-old Bodegas Bilbaínas were born with a French heart and were established with a Riojan spirit. Bodegas Bilbaínas is the oldest bottling firm in La Rioja. It is the winery with the largest surface area of underground caves ("calados") in the whole region (3,400 m2). It also has the most extensive area of vineyards in the municipality of Haro. Since the beginning, the winery has been defined by its deep knowledge of the territory and the care in the production of its single-vineyard wines. These are extremely identified with the plots where they came from, hence their names: in 1911 Viña Pomal was created; in 1921, Viña Zaco; in 1923, the white wine Viña Paceta; and the range was extended in 1994 with La Vicalanda reserva, a distinguished and expressive wine that was born from the 9-hectare farm, selected in the vineyard area of Viña Pomal.
