CVNE Monopole Rioja Blanco 2018 - 750ml
89 Points Wine Advocate
There are two versions of the dry white, the young, fresh and fruit-driven 2018 Monopole and another one they call "clásico," which is released later and has some Manzanilla de Sanlúcar added to it. This fruity white is also floral and light and was produced with Viura (a.k.a. Macabeo) grapes that fermented in stainless steel at low temperature with dry yeasts to keep the primary aromas. It's from a fresh year with less ripeness and alcohol (perhaps more noticeable in the reds), and this continues with the profile of previous years. The source of the grapes is quite stable, so variations are due to the climate of the year. 400,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2018.
Nice pale yellow color with green hues. On the nose the bouquet is elegante floral and fruity notes such as apple, pear, and citrus notes. Smooth entry and delicate passage through the palate which demonstrates a balanced and fresh wine, with a long friuty after taste. Best served chiled at 50ºF.

Shipping wine around the country is very expensive. We charge about a third less than what it actually costs us. If you need to return your order (or if the wine gets returned back to us because you were unable to receive it after 3 attempts and you didn't email us to make other arrangements), we need to collect a return shipping fee that is up to double the amount of the shipping you paid. Upon receiving the wine back we will refund for the wine minus the initial shipping cost. In the event that we make a mistake we work with you to fix whatever went wrong at no additional cost to you.
