Capellanía se elabora con la magnífica Viura del Pago de Capellanía, un viñedo de más de 70 años ubicado en la zona más elevada de la Finca Ygay, la más prestigiosa de Marqués de Murrieta. Es un blanco complejo que nos recuerdan a los vinos generosos de Jerez por esas características notas de levaduras y frutos secos. Ideal para guardar un tiempo, ya que tiene una magnífica evolución en botella, en la que los toques propios de la crianza en madera se van integrando poco a poco.

Opinión de los críticos
Other than the rare Castillo de Ygay, whose next potential vintage could be 1998, the one white produced at Marqués de Murrieta is the 2014 Capellanía. It's pure Viura from the vineyard inside the estate that names the wine, six hectares planted in 1945. The bunches were pressed in a vertical press, and the wine was let to settle before fermenting in stainless steel for 24 days. 2014 was a challenging year, and Viura is also sensitive to botrytis. So, they had to be careful with the picking date, the first grapes to be harvested in the first half of September. The wine matured in new French oak barrels for 15 months. This is a lighter vintage, and the nose has developed a little faster. This has complexity and nuance, and in a way, it reminds me of the 2013, also a cooler year. 44,568 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2018.
This is a very impressive food-wine. The discreet candied lemon and lime notes are underlined by the French oak and the medium-full palate is dry, but silky with a long, refined finish. Named after the plot where the viura vines of the estate are grown.
