Vineyard and processing
Elaboration (vinification)
Viña Pomal Terruño Centenario Reserva is made with grapes from a selection of our vineyard plots. Fermentation at 28 °C and a 3 weeks’ total maceration. It is aged for 18 months in American oak barrels, 20% new oak. During this time, periodic rackings allow us to clarify the wine through natural decanting. After barrel ageing, the wine is aged for two years in the bottle before being put on market.
Vineyard (viticulture)
The Viña Pomal estate covers 90 hectares of vineyards. They are located inside the municipality of Haro and less than 2 kilometres from the winery, in one of the town’s most beautiful enclaves,overlooking the Ebro river as it flows down stream through the Conchas de Haro pass.
Our estate features different ecosystems with different soils and varying degrees of exposure to the sun, which calls for the careful selection of homogenous zones. The estate’s viticulture combines traditional Rioja practices with precision winegrowing techniques, which result in state of the art environmentally friendly winegrowing, always with a view to obtaining premium quality.
2013 was an atypical vintage similar to those of 25 or 30 years ago. The year was particularly rainy, with precipitation in excess of 1000 mm. It was relatively cold during the first part of the growth cycle until June and July, which were quite hot. After that, temperatures remained moderately low for the rest of the season. The wines have good acidity, less alcohol than previous vintages and good structure. The wines are smooth and subtle; good quality with a profile in line with classic Riojas.
