Capellania Rioja Blanco 2015 Marques De Murrieta 75cl / 13%
A bottle of Capellania Rioja Blanco 2015 from Marques De Murrieta in Logroño, Spain; produced from 5.5 hectares of Viura grapes matured in new French oak barrels for 15 months prior to bottling.
'The Viura plot covers 6 hectares, planted in 1945 on a plateau at an altitude of 485 metres. The wine has been aged for fifteen months in new French oak after fermentation in stainless steel. Green tinges and white gold, then a seductive nose which marries tropic fruit, beeswax, verbena and chamomile. The palate adds chalky, white pepper complexity and hints of pineapple and quince. The tropical and the citric dance an energetic pas de deux; fresh and composed, yet, for all that, one does not entirely lose the distinctive waxy personality of its previous incarnation, when American oak held court. 93/100' Simon Field MW, Decanter, 2019
