Bright on the nose with notes of mineral, some coconut husk, pear, and a slight hint of sage Light, crisp, and fairly fruity up front then turning lemony, citrussy with a nice mineral wash then very high acid finale, super saline and minerally and refreshing. 87pts

Agree with GDP's rating for the most part, however this is an 89-91 point white for me. Maybe I just need to try more whites, but this is a beauty at a bargain price. Tropical fruits, lemon zest, with a great balance of fruit and acidity.


Winemaker's Notes:

C.V.N.E., or to give it its full name, Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España (The Northern Spanish Wine Company) was established on the 24th of March 1879 in Haro, Rioja. Set up by two brothers, Eusebio and Raimundo Real de Asúa, their aim was to capitalize on the flourishing new trade in wine. C.V.N.E. is based in the traditional neighbourhood of the station, in the heart of the Rioja wine region. Historically, some of the oldest wineries of Rioja Alta established themselves here in order to benefit from the ease of transport via rail to the port of Bilbao, the most efficient form of transport in those days. This ' Monopole Unoaked Blanco' is made entirely from white Viura grapes, hand harvested at optimum ripeness. A cold skin maceration produces excellent aromatic extraction and, after pressing, the must is allowed to fall naturally and then fermentation is carried out at cold, controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks, to retain its aromatic freshness. This wine displays a bright straw yellow colour with hints of green. Fine citrus and floral aromas, some grapefruit and orange blossom. Fine and elegant on the palate with ripe citrus and mango flavours and a balanced acidity, creating a long fresh, appealing finish.
