D.O.Ca. Rioja (La Rioja)
Viña Pomal Crianza is a red wine from Rioja made by the Bilbaínas Bodegas, a winery that was founded in 1901, thanks to a group of Bilbao businessmen. Don Santiago de Ugarte was the co-founder and first managing director of Bodegas Bilbaínas.
The climate in this area is moderately continental with a very subtle Cantabrian influence as the Sierra de Cantabria acts as a natural barrier against the cold north winds. This wine is a varietal Tempranillo (100%) from 90 hectares of vineyards located in the town of Haro. The vineyards are planted between 380 and 500 metres above sea level. As for the process, Viña Pomal Crianza is made with a traditional winemaking process. After de-stemming and crushing, alcoholic fermentation is carried out. Subsequently, maceration is performed for two weeks. Finally, this wine spends 12 months in American oak barrels and a minimum of 6 months in the bottle.
The palate is balanced, soft and fresh. Shows good structure and soft tannins.
Cherry red with violet hues.
The nose is intense, dominated by floral and fruity aromas (black fruit) with notes of liquorice, vanilla and toasted flavours.
