Marques de Murrieta Capellania Reserva Blanco 2015 75cl
Marques de Murrieta Capellania Reserva Blanco from the Spanish Vineyards of Marques de Murrieta is 100% Viura grapes. The grapes are first carefully crushed and after a short skin contact they are gently pressed in a vertical press. This is a gentle and slow process that favours the extraction of all the aromatic potential from the low-yield Viura grapes. The juice is then settled and fermented in a temperature-controlled stainless steel tank for 24 days.Read more...

92 Points - Sarah Jane Evans MW, DecanterGrape: ViuraComplex aromas of quince, pear, fresh almonds and toasted notes combine with a distinct salinity. Powerful, elegant and fresh on the palate with great acidity. A touch of creaminess, with chamomile, dried apricots and pears with just a touch of honey."This is a very impressive food-wine" - Sarah Jane Evans MW, Decanter. Delicious when paired with smoked fish, white meat, foie, cheeses, Asian food and rice dishes.
Murrieta is one of the oldest and most respected bodegas in Rioja Alta. Their wines are concentrated and long-lived and some, like "Castillo Ygay", have become legendary amongst wine-lovers. Marques de Murrieta has not stood back and stagnated however; their 300-hectare estate produces Dalmau - a blend which represents an avant-garde expression of their terroir.
