Description

Marqués de Murrieta is a prestigious family owned winery, established in 1852. The estate is currently run by Count Vicente Cebrián-Sagarigga and his sister, Cristina. Capellanía is made from Viura grapes grown in a single 6ha, high-altitude vineyard planted in 1945. After fermentation, the wine is aged for a year and a half in new French oak barrels, followed by one year resting in bottle.

Tasting Note

Marqués de Murrieta Capellanía is complex and elegant, a benchmark oaked white Rioja with a deeply perfumed floral aroma, nutty dry palate and lemon rind fresh acidity on the finish.

Rich toasted almonds combine with mouth-watering pear and red apple fruits in a very stylish medium to full-bodied wine. Try this with richer fish and shellfish or grilled white meats. Maybe lobster with a buttery sauce?
