A pale yellow with slight greyish steel hues.

A rich aromatic bouquet. Notes of white fruit, citrus and fennel with a light toastiness from aging in oak.
Mouth
Friendly and fresh on the palate, transmits the balance of the fruit with certain notes of salinity. Good length and volume provide the fineness of a single area where we work these strains of white.

Vineyard and processing
Elaboration (vinification)
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.
Vineyard (viticulture)
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. A loamy-sandy texture. Varietals: the Viura constitutes the base wine contributing body and subtleness to this offering. The Malvasía gives it lift, adding freshness and fragrance to the wine.
Rioja is marked by a dry, mild winter. Good spring weather and a warm summer, coupled with an absence of rain during harvest, ensures top quality grapes in excellent conditions.
