Wine tasting notes

Straw yellow colour with slightly golden notes. Complex aromatic intensity with aromas of gooseberry, apple and chamomile flowers. Sweet spice, bready and savoury flavours on the palate, marked by saline notes, with a fresh and long finish provided by a slight acidity that leads to a fruity and mineral aftertaste.

Food matching

Elegant and refined- this beguiling wine is delicous on its own or paired with a range of cuisine.

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2014) - 91 to 93 pts

Aug 2016 - Reviewer : Luis Gutierrez - was thinking "I wish this wine went back to the more serious bottlings of 40 and 50 years ago..." when tasting the regular Monopole, and they showed me this 2014 Monopole Clásico, which is a wine to celebrate the centenary of the brand (registered in 1914) and it blew me away. They have produced this wine like it was done in the good old times, adding some Manzanilla Sherry (yes, yes, you read it correctly); they top up the Viura with Manzanilla purchased from the Hidalgo family of Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Not only did they add the wine, they purchased the wine in bota, so the wine is also aged in Sherry casks. It does have an amazing nose with notes of sea breeze, iodine and esparto grass. The palate is extremely tasty, but at the same time is light and fresh, with the acidity of Viura and the kick and pungency from Manzanilla. Awesome! This will be bottled in a couple of months, but I couldn't help reporting on it. It will wear the old Monopole label. It won't be a one off for the centenary, they will keep producing it every vintage.
