Viña Pomal Gran Reserva is a serious and high quality wine that combines the best of La Rioja. It represents the great classic reserve of La Rioja, faithful to its origins for more than a century.
It is only made in exceptional vintages, and only in a limited quantity of bottles.
Viña Pomal Gran Reserva is a red wine from D.O La Rioja produced by Bodegas Bilbaínas. This wine is a blend of 2 grape varieties: Tempranillo (90%) with a touch of Graciano (10%).
The grapes that are used to make Pomal Gran Reserva are grown on from limestone and gravel soils. The soil fertility is low, which results in a more concentrated flavour in the grapes. The grapes are grown on low bush vines.
The Gran Reserva pours with garnet and cherry hues.
The unique vinification process of this wine provides a complex, elegant nose with notes of liquorice and red fruit, typical of the Tempranillo, along with hints of spice subtly added by the Graciano.
During bottle ageing, all of this is comes together with toasty and balsamic aromas (vanilla, pepper, tobacco) contributed by the barrels.
As the wine is aired in the glass, it discloses its full range of nuances and complex aromas. In the mouth, it reflects our surroundings, with a mild entry and a sense of elegance and balance, ending in long persistence, denoting the craft of barrel ageing and the assemblage provided by a long stay in the bottle.
