Capellania is a single-vineyard wine of limited production. Planted in 1945, the low-yielding Capellania vineyard is perched at the Marqués de Murrieta Ygay Estate’s highest point, 485 metres above sea level. It is composed entirely of hand-harvested Viura that is gently crushed, briefly macerated, and pressed in a vertical press. This is a slow process that favours the extraction of aromatic compounds. The juice is settled and fermented in cool steel for 24 days prior to 15 months ageing in new French oak and one year maturation in bottle.

The result is a singular wine: a white with the soul of a red. Astonishingly elegant, complex, and impressively structured. The incredible bouquet will be enhanced by decanting an hour before serving. With a steely straw colour and a very well-defined bouquet of ripe apple, spicy notes of thyme and fennel, hints of almonds and an elegant smoked note. In the mouth, the wine is straightforward and clean, full-bodied, lively and well-balanced. It has a long life ahead. Pair with citrus-glazed duck or very rich, firm fish, like grilled sturgeon.

“The one wine that has potential to become even subtler and more complex than Murrieta’s Ygay is its Capellanía. Showing how the well-kept traditions of Rioja can be informed by today’s knowledge, it is a most refined wine, made after very long ageing in French barriques. An inimitable mix of a unique vineyard and exceptional wisdom.”
