CVNE Monopole Rioja Blanco 2017

Rioja, SpainThe CVNE Monopole is 100 percent viura, grown in the Rioja Alta subzone, at high altitude where it is subject to the influence of the cold Atlantic Ocean. More than anything, this is a wine for your summer soul. This style is dry, crisp, and elegant, with creamy, juicy, mineral, lime-flavoured fruit and a chalky, salty, mineral finish. If that is not enough for $18, it’s guaranteed fresh because it’s finished under screwcap — the perfect west coast seafood wine. Monopole is the oldest white wine brand in Spain.
