Description

White Viña Pomal is made from the region’s traditional varietals: Viura and Malvasía. After destemming, the skins are lightly macerated (6 hours) and then pressed. The free running must is fermented in new barrels of American oak and French oak (50/50) at a temperature of 15-18 °C and left 4 months in contact with the lees. Helped by gentle stirrings of the lees the wine gains incomplexity and volume on the palate.

Tasting note

A rich aromatic bouquet. Notes of white fruit, citrus and fennel with a light toastiness from aging in oak

Food pairing

It matches perfectly with fish and seafood dishes but also with mild dishes such as vegetables, purées and cheeses.

About the producer

The estate, located on alluvial soils from the Ebro River, which it overlooks, is one of the first vineyards of the Appellation that we come across as we cross the “Conchas de Haro” ravine. This zone where Atlantic and Mediterranean climates converge lies on the frontier of winegrowing. It is here that our varietals develop their finesse and aromatic expression to the utmost. Soil: deep, fresh alluvial soils, with lots of pebbles which ensure ripening.
