2003 Marques de Murrieta Capellania Blanco Rioja (Elsewhere $26)

SKU #1058490

Composed of 100% old vine viura grown in very stony soil, this wine is a delicious example of traditional, barrel aged white Rioja. Though it sees 18 months in 225 l American & French oak, the wine has a wonderful acidity and brightness. For fans of Lopez de Heredia, as well as white Burgundy drinkers, this wine might well be of interest. 89 points Wine Spectator: "Orange peel, tobacco, pine and tangerine flavors are focused and clean in this distinctive white. Has a lean but silky texture, and stays lively through the citrusy finish. Drink now." (06/08)

I love this wine! If you like Jura wines, you need to try this! It will blow you mind, and for half the price of a Jura wine. I really think that the Rioja whites do not get the respect they are due. That will now be my quest; just like Don Quixote! Well, when in Spain.
