Marques-de-Murrieta-Rioja-Blanco-Capellania-2011

Marques de Murrieta, Rioja Blanco ''Capellania'', 2014

“The Viura grapes for the 2013 Capellanía were harvested on October 10th and 11th, lightly and slowly pressed, the juice let to settle, racked off the solids and put to ferment at a low temperature in stainless steel. The wine always matures in new French oak barrels for 15 months. This is still very young, and the oak is still a little present, and it might need some more bottle age to integrate it. At least that’s what I saw in the 2012, which I tasted next to this, and it has had the advantage of one extra year in bottle. 2013 was a small vintage, they had to sort and do a strict selection. They usually produce between 20,000 and 40,000 bottles, and this time it was 21,281 bottles. It was bottled in March 2017.”
