Description

The Viña Pomal estate covers 101 hectares of vineyards. It was first planted in 1908 and its oldest vine stock dates back to the year 1971. Viña Pomal Gran Reserva follows a traditional winemaking process: after destemming and crushing the grapes undergo a moderately long maceration and subsequent alcoholic and malolactic fermentations before being racked and lightly clarified. The wine is then poured into barrels where it is aged for 24 months; the barrels are traditionally of American oak. After its aging in barrels the wine spends one year in oak kegs and three years in bottles.

Tasting Notes

  • Nose Nose
    Complex, elegant nose with notes of liquorice and red fruit along with hints of spices subtly added by the Graciano. During bottle ageing, all of this is assembled with toasty and balsamic aromas (vanilla, pepper, tobacco) contributed by the barrels.
  • Appearance Appearance
    Garnet and cherry hues with light orange reflections on the rim.
  • Palate
    A mild entry and a sense of elegance and balance, ending in long persistence, denoting the craft of barrel ageing and the assemblage provided by a long stay in the bottle.

Sommelier Review

“Balsamic berry aromas are heady and include tones of tobacco, cigar box and maple. This gran reserva from a fabulous vintage is solid and chewy, with ripe tannins that are firm but not too harsh. Baked berry flavors are augmented by chocolate and spice notes. It's dense and chewy on the finish, with just enough acidity to ensure balance and longevity. Simply amazing.”
