Marques de Murrieta Capellania Rioja Blanco DOC

2010

In a Nutshell

Not your average white Rioja!

Tasting Notes

Pale gold. Intense aroma of ripe golden fruit with smoke and almonds. The palate is dry and savoury with oak vanilla overlaid with golden fruit, and a lovely balancing freshness on the finish. A modern take on the traditional white Rioja style.

Production Notes

Grapes are first carefully squeezed and then pressed gently in a vertical press. This is a smooth and slow process. Fermentation takes place in a temperature controlled stainless steel tank for 24 days without skin contact. The juice then spends 20 months in 225 litre new French oak barrels. Bottling date: 2nd September 2013.
