2015 C.V.N.E. Monopole Blanco Seco
C.V.N.E Monopole have resurrected this very traditional style of Rioja Blanco to commemorate the centenary of the brand. The Viura blend is topped up with Manzanilla sherry purchased from the Hidalgo family of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Once the wine has been made it is then aged in the Botas (Sherry casks) for 8 months. It has an amazing nose with notes of chamomile, apple, gooseberry, sea breeze, iodine and grass. The palate is complex with aromatic fruit, nuts, spices and a mineral quality.
