Marques de Murrieta Capellania Reserva Blanco Rioja 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is quite oaky on the nose with notes of, vanilla, pear, anise, mint, mud, and bay leaf – nice acid, a bit lean, weird feel with good flavors yet an intense dose of wood and fatness fills the backend, finishes with a bit of almond, lemon cream and tannin and a hint of oxidative sweetness. 82pts

Great white rioja, stands up to some red meats. Nice deep flavour whilst still refreshing.

One of the most famous names in Rioja, Marques de Murrieta was founded in 1852 by Luciano Murrieta, who was inspired by his three-year sojourn in Bordeaux. In 1983 it was purchased by Vicente Dalmau Cebrian-Sagarriga and presently, winemaker Maria Vargas oversees their portfolio that includes both modern and classic styles of Rioja. The Capellania Blanco Reserva is the only white produced by Murrieta at this time and comes from a vineyard called Capellania, the highest plot within the Ygay Estate, located at 1500 feet altitude. It’s 100% Viura from 60-year-old vines. Wine Spectator scored it 93 points and said "This expressive white is fragrant with almond blossom, citrus peel, apple, vanilla and spice notes that sail through the palate, carried on firm acidity that gives the wine a lithe, muscular texture. Fresh and long. Drink now through 2020."

Marqués de Murrieta Capellania Blanco Reserva Rioja 2004: Dieser kraftvolle Weißwein wird aus Trauben der Einzellage Capellania der bekannten Ygay-Weinberge vinifiziert. Die edle, im Barrique gereifte, Viura erinnert an einen Blumenladen. Dazu verschmelzen Aromen von Toastbrot mit klaren Noten reifer exotischer Früchte. Am Gaumen zeigt er sich sehr facettenreich und mit großer Ausdruckskraft, ein wunderbares Gleichgewicht von Holz und Frucht. Die sehr delikate und feine Weinsäure beeindruckt und der Wein endet gut strukturiert in einem langen Abgang.Dieser indivudelle Weiße ist besonders zu geräuchertem Fisch, Reisgerichten, Pasteten und Käse zu empfehlen.Weingut: Marques de MurrietaRegion: RiojaRebsorte: 100% ViuraInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,0 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,5 g/lRestsüße: 1,25 g/lFassreife: in Barriques gereift (18 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 4-6 Jahre ab Jahrgangempfohlene Serviertemperatur: 8-12°C Weißwein > Spanien > Rioja

Wine Enthusiast ReviewLucid yellow in the glass, yet lightly oxidized on the nose. A spacy, unique Viura. Theres dry apricot and peach pit flavors, and mouthfeel and acidity are impeccable. A treat for explorers; eschews all blueprints for modern white wine.Wine Tasting NotesCappellana is made solely from Viura grapes from our Capellania vineyard within the 300-hectare Ygay Estate. A deep golden color, its complex aroma and rich taste are the hallmarks of this world famous white wine.
