Viña Pomal Garnacha is part of the collection of monovarietals from Bodegas Bilbaínas, Viña Pomal Vinos Singulares. Selection of old vines at altitude above 600m where we find a greater balance and freshness in the expression. This Grenache wants to demonstrate the aromatic potential of a variety that is the most planted in the world. A Grenache of high areas, that has freshness and all its fruit power, with great volume. That is harmonious, without sin of excesses.
Bright red with violet hues.
Fragrant and delicate, blending intense fruitiness (blueberries, raspberry) with floral notes (jasmine, violet) and a hint of camomile.
A great deal of body and freshness with velvety tannins. A silky and amiable mouthfeel with a lingering buttery finish.
Founded in 1901 in the town of Haro’s legendary Station Quarter, Bodegas Bilbaínas is the longest-standing bottling winery in Rioja. It also has the most extensive underground cellars in the region and a greater area of vineyards than any other winery in the town: 250 hectares of high quality vines, which supply the winery with its own grapes, ensuring that they can be processed quickly without losing their qualities. Viña Pomal is its flagship brand, which embodies the Rioja Alta's best winemaking tradition. These are exceptional wines that have remained faithful to the classic style of authentic Rioja from the outset.
