Marques de Murrieta Capellania Blanco Reserva Rioja 2006 750ml


SKU: a0ef3e3fcc2f Categories: ,


Full-bodied and powerful, with aromas and flavor of oak, lemons and minerals. Pairs well with smoked fish, white meat, duck liver, pate, cheeses and rice dishes. Grape Variety: 100% Viura. Capellanía single-vineyard, a fifty year- old plot located at the highest altitude in our 300 Ha/741 acres Ygay Estate (Rioja Alta). Harvest: It took place on September the 20th, 2006. The grapes are harvested by hand and then taken to the winery in small quantities in a short time. Key aspects of vinification: Grapes are first carefully squeezed and then pressed gently in a vertical, wooden basket press (S.XIX). This is a smooth and slow process that favours the extraction of the maximum aromatic potential from the grapes. Fermentation takes place in a temperature controlled, stainless steel tank, for 20-25 days, at 12º-13ºC, in the absence of the grape skins.
