Red wine – Viña Pomal Commitment 2015
Viña Pomal, the flagship of Bodegas Bilbaínas, presents a new limited edition and more special that evokes their values, those who claimed and those that are flagged: commitment, source, tradition and the land from where everything is born. This is Viña Pomal Commitment, the first wine in the world aged in oak barrels tattooed.
Viña Pomal has wanted once again to reaffirm her indebtedness with the classical values and has made it neither more nor less than by the art of the tattoo. A route by 4 Spanish cities in which 6 tattoo artists of national and international renown have been interpreted, recording fire in oak barrels, their values of life. Of these barrels is now Viña Pomal Commitment, an author's wine red unique and of limited production (5.000 bottles).
The five red grape varieties of Rioja are blended in this wine to enhance the virtues of tradition and the strength of character. The elegance of the Tempranillo, the exquisite rusticity of the Graciano, the expressive charm of Garnacha, the spicy nuances as genuine Maturana and power rugged Mazuelo. A powerful combination, a game full of boldness, their commitment to the origin, and a wine unique and original, Viña Pomal Commitment. The casks in which it has been elaborated Viña Pomal Commitment have been marked to fire with our values of life. Our source, tradition, land and commitment lie forever on the wood of French and american oak. A powerful combination, a game full of boldness, a commitment to our origin. “We want to claim back the commitment with the values of the whole life.”, Alejandro Lopez, winemaker of Bodegas Bilbaínas.
For the production of this wine has resorted to the five varietals of Rioja, that provide a differential note in the assembly. Each one of them, looking for its unique features, it is cultivated in different soils and in different areas that make up the region of Rioja. Therefore, we've had Tempranillo soil clay-calcareous Haro, from the best plots of Viña Pomal, Grenache vineyards in altitude in the terrain cascajoso Rioja Media, Maturana tinta and Mazuelo of the area of Rioja Baja, looking for their perfect maturation, and Graciano of alluvial soils of the Rioja Alta area.
