Víña Pomal Gran Reserva 2010

vina-pomal-gran-reserva-2010Bodegas Bilbainas has revived the original label of its Viña Pomal Gran Reserva for the release of the 2010 vintage. Rated ‘excellent’ by the Rioja Control Board, the Viña Pomal Gran Reserva 2010, the flagship wine of Bodegas Bilbainas, features the classic gold Viña Pomal label first used by the brand in 1904.

A classic Rioja blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano, the gran reserva is aged for 24 months in American oak barrels, 12 months in oak vats and 36 months in bottle. The wine is described by winemaker Alejandro López as possessing “a complex, elegant nose with notes of liquorice and red fruit, typical of Tempranillo, along with hints of spice added by the Graciano”.
López said the 2010 harvest in Rioja was “one of the best vintages for almost 20 years”.

“Low temperatures and rains during flowering had a positive affect on ripening,” he said. “This, coupled with a hot, dry summer and rain in September, provided optimum ripening conditions and allowed us to start picking early. It was an extraordinary year resulting in balanced, very aromatic, well-structured wines.”

RRP: £20
