Monopole Unoaked Blanco 2019

Rioja
  • 75cl bottle

Bright pale yellow in colour with green hints at the rim. The nose shows aromas reminiscent of spring flowers and white fruits such as pear, apple and white currant. The palate is silky and pleasing due to perfect balance between structure and acidity.

Vineyards

Rioja Alta is the westernmost of Rioja's three sub-areas. It is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean's climate. The soil in Rioja Alta is rich in iron, limestone and clay, along with nutrients deposited in the region by the tributaries of the Ebro River.

Vintage

Given the adverse weather conditions of 2019 harvest, timing of key tasks in the vineyard was critical to obtaining high quality grapes. It was a year of high rainfall but the harvest took place calmly and selectively.

Winemaking

This wine is made from 100% viura grapes. Gentle pressing encouraged the release of free run juice which was then fermented in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature, so facilitating the extraction and conservation of key primary fruit and floral aromas typical of the variety

Enjoy with:

  • Grilled and Roasted White Meats
  • Fish/Shellfish
  • Salads and Picnics
Great with seafood and fish-based rice dishes
