D.O.Ca. Rioja (La Rioja)
Viña Pomal Blanco 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.
