Review

The Viña Pomal Reserva Centenario is the sort of wine that can be considered an essential Rioja. In a classic yet also contemporary style, produced by one of the region's great wineries, located moreover in Haro's historic Barrio de la Estación, a well-made, most satisfying wine.

It's created from Tempranillo grapes that come exclusively from vineyards which Bodegas Bilbaínas owns in Haro, lying very close to the River Ebro. Once inside the winery and after a careful selection of the grapes, a long maceration process takes place that provides top-quality must. After fermentation, the wine matures in oak barrels for 18 months and rests in bottle for a period of two years before leaving the cellar.

It appears a lovely cherry colour and boasts a fruity, balsamic nose, notably featuring blackberries and liquorice. On the palate it's elegant and complex, as one would expect from a good Rioja Reserva. Long, fine and balsamic. As we said at the beginning: an essential Rioja.

Alle Weine von "Viña Pomal" zeichnen sich durch eing gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis aus. So auch der Centenario. Schöner Tempranillo!

Excellent value

I got aquainted with the Centenario 2014 a year ago and have never looked back. I still keep on ordering it while the product lasts. Made me vist the bodega itself in Haro! Super quality for its price range. Excellent with grilled lamb.

Buono ma non il massimo!

Buono ma non il massimo! ha un ottimo profumo ma manca di retrogusto, inoltre molto leggero per i miei gusti.

Excelente

Nunca lo había probado y sin duda es una maravilla. La verdad es que me confundí porque no pensaba que fuera la botella pequeña, pero ha merecido la pena sin duda. Ha acompañado un cocido de forma espectacular, ha sido un placer.

Me gusta su sabor.

Hace años que lo consumo. Después de probar varios, incluso más caros, fue este el que más se adaptó a mi gusto.
