Description

Marques de Murrieta Blanco Reserva Capellania Rioja DOC is a single vineyard white Rioja made from 100% Viura grapes.

Marques de Murrieta was established in 1852 and is one of the oldest and most respected bodegas of Rioja. Their wines are made in a “classic” Rioja style and receive long ageing in barrel before release. Their wines are concentrated and long-lived, both red and white, and some – like the Gran Reserva “Castillo Ygay” – have become legendary amongst Rioja-lovers.

Marques de Murrieta Blanco Reserva Capellania Rioja DOC is made exclusively from grapes harvested from the Capellania vineyard. This vineyard is located at an altitude of 485 metres within the famous 300 hectare Ygay estate in the Rioja Alta. The Viura vines were planted in 1955. The grapes are carefully, manually harvested and gently crushed, then pressed in a vertical press. The juice is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel vats for 24 days without skin contact. Finally the wine is aged for 16 months in 225 litre new French oak barrels.

The result is a surprising white wine of great bouquet, a white wine of character born to surprise by its uniqueness and perfect to accompany a great variety of rich dishes, with a magnificent potential to evolve and last gracefully in the bottle.

Tasting Notes

Marques de Murrieta Blanco Reserva Capellania Rioja is smoky and nutty on the nose with aromas of fresh quince, pear, almonds and toasted notes. The palate showcases touches of oak, almonds, camomile, pear, dried apricots and has a creamy feel. There is superb balance and texture, with a line of fine acidity, the wine really develops in the mouth.

Food Pairing

This superb white Rioja pairs well with sea bream, smoked fish, roast chicken, and the cheeseboard at the end of the meal. It’s incredibly versatile and also pairs well with Asian dishes.
