2012 Capellanía Blanco, Reserva, Marqués de Murrieta, Rioja

This is a great value pick from Marqués de Murrieta, and a superb example of modern white Rioja. The fruit is bright and pure, its rich texture wonderfully balanced with fresh acidity. Impressively complex, while it grows and develops in the glass Capellanía is never less than delightfully drinkable.

TASTING NOTES

Remarkably fresh for a five-year-old dry white, this wine has subtle lemon, smoke, white pepper, and herb notes. Good concentration with not a gram of fat on the full-ish body, and a crisp finish. Creamy texture.
