Description

Established in 1852, Murrieta is one of the oldest and most respected bodegas in Rioja Alta. Their wines are concentrated and long-lived and some, like “Castillo Ygay”, have become legendary amongst wine-lovers. Marqués de Murrieta has not stood back and stagnated however; their 300 hectare estate produces Dalmau – a blend which represents an avant-garde expression of their terroir.

Marqués de Murrieta – Capellanía Blanco 2016 is bright straw-coloured, on the nose aromas of ripe white fruit, Golden apple, Conference pear, with hints of butter and hints of citrus, fennel and smoked notes stand out. Balanced on the palate, with texture, refreshing acidity and a long and persistent finish.

Food matches: Sole fillets, with red shrimp and fine velouté with white wine reduction; Mushroom risotto with grated Comte cheese.

Serves at: 13°C
