Monopole Clásico Blanco Seco 2016
Monopole es la marca de vino blanco más antigua de España ya que se elabora desde 1915. La singularidad de este blanco basado en la Viura reside en el aporte de una pequeña cantidad de Manzanilla elaborada según el método tradicional seguido de una crianza biológica bajo velo de flor que aporta al vino unas características notas de camomila y frutos secos. Además, incrementa la sensación de frescura por su gran acidez y una largura tremenda.

The second white is an homage to the old times when they added Sherry to it! The 2016 Monopole Clásico was produced with Viura grapes, but they added Manzanilla de Sanlúcar (produced with Palomino grapes) that was purchased from the same producer that always supplied the wine to top up the old bottlings of Monopole. It matured in used 300-, 400- and 500-liter oak barrels for around eight months. It has a deliciously nutty nose with clear notes of biological aging and a tasty, almost salty touch. This is a year with great freshness, which seems to add to the deliciousness of the wine. This is a wine for food. Ideally, this should be kept in bottle for two or three years, as the experience with white wines with flor develop nicely in bottle. In fact, they have kept some wine to do some kind of late release. 30,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2018. - Luis Gutiérrez.
I am always a fan of this with 15% Manzanilla Sherry in the blend. A nutty and dried pear character dominates the aromas with green apple and lemon undertones. Full body, layered with a gorgeous richness and depth. A unique white wine of the world. Drink now.
