“Spanish Sensation For Your Next Crustacean Creation!”

Spanish Sensation For Your Next Crustacean Creation!

By David Gettenberg

We are entering the peak of lobster season in North America, which means supply will start increasing and pricing will begin to level off.

If you are not in the mood for a buttery Chardonnay for your next crustacean creation, we highly recommend the 2014 Cune, "Monopole Classico" Blanco Seco.

This Spanish white is mostly Viura (90%) with a dash of Manzanilla (10%). This blend is a throwback to the winery's old-style monopole, thus the "Classico" reference.

Young, savory and youthful, the Manzanilla provides a briny, savory component which makes it wonderfully food friendly - though it almost requires it to be paired with seafood. The Viura provides lasting notes of lemon zest, white peach and young tangerine creating a crisp core with amazing complexity.

Feel free to enjoy this Spanish beauty now, but it can be aged for several years when it will take on a nutty complexity.

There are many good Spanish white wines, but none as nuanced as this and certainly not at this compelling price point. Enjoy!
