Characteristics of Marqués de Murrieta Capellanía

Marqués de Murrieta Capellanía is a white wine from the D.O Rioja produced by Marqués de Murrieta. 


The winery, located in Logroño, is one of the oldest in Spain, dating back to 1852 when Luciano de Murrieta began to produce and sell the first wines from La Rioja.

Marqués de Murrieta Capellanía is made exclusively using Viura grapes. The grapes come from ancient vineyards, from vines planted in 1945. The vineyards are located at an altitude of around 485m, one of the highest points of the Ygay estate.

The production of Marqués de Murrieta Capellanía begins with the harvest, which is carried out manually, in September. Once at the winery, the bunches are slowly and lightly pressed, which helps extract the best aromas of the wine.

Following this, the juice is left to ferment in Stainless Steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 10º C. After fermentation, the wine is aged for 15 months in 225litre capacity new French oak barrels.

We recommend that you allow the wine to aerate one hour before serving.

Serve at 12ºC

Tasting notes Marqués de Murrieta Capellanía

After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
Marqués de Murrieta Capellanía 2014 is a mature, structured and creamy white wine. A good vintage where the aromas of white fruit blend perfectly with the toasted notes of aging, and notes of spices, vanilla and nuts. On the palate it is glyceride, full and fleshy, with a very lingering and persistent finish.
This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
Sight
Nose
Sight Intense and very attractive golden yellow colour. Clean and bright wine with dense tears. Nose Good intensity, complex and serious aromas. From the begining, the wooden notes appear along with elegant toasted touches which remain present during its evolution. After aerating the wine, its light smoky notes, its hints of nuts are released along with some creamy spices and some milky touches with notes of ripe white fruit (pear), citrus and some tropical nuances. In the background, a curious and subtle saline and mineral touch is noticed. Taste Great, elegant wine with a perfect, long, delicious, dry and unctuous structure. It has lots of volume, and the wooden and fruity aromas are much more balanced than in the nose. Excellent acidity. Some touches of liquor. Very long and persistent finish with hints of fruit. A pleasant, elegant and seductive wine.
Sight Golden yellow. Clean and bright. Glyceric. Nose Intense and complex aromas with a good presence of wood along with white fruit and white flowers. When it finally opens up, the wine gains in intensity and its notes of vanilla and citrus are displayed with a sweety and milky touch. Light mineral touches. Taste Excellent wine with very good, large and intense attack. Its notes of fruit, vanilla and toasted are very present and powerful. Very tasty and smooth mid palate. Very good acidity that balances the freshness. Long and lingering aftertaste. A pleasant, elegant and seductive wine.
Sight Brilliant golden yellow, clean. Nose Complex notes of white fruit and toasted barrels. Taste Full and unctuous, very ripe tannins and long aftertaste.
