Description

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.
