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.

One of two vintages I tasted of the single-vineyard white, the just-bottled 2015 Capellanía was cropped from a warm and healthy year, and the wine matured in new French oak barrels for 15 months. Like it happened with the rosé, the two vintages I tasted of this white—2015 and 2014—are also very different, with 2015 a more homogeneous year and the 2014 quite a bit more challenging. 2015 was a healthy and warm year, and the grapes were picked quickly (they harvest all of these grapes in one and a half days). All of the wines are kept some time in concrete before bottling. This is a powerful and round wine, with stuffing to develop nicely in bottle, a little in the style of the 2012. However, don't think the wine is soft or flabby, as Viura keeps very good acidity and makes wines that are lively and with freshness in the finish. This is, of course, bone dry and nicely textured. These are generously oaked whites that should develop over the years. 54,495 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2019. This will be released in September 2019.
A linear and tight white with superb lemon curd, apple, lemon and creme caramel. Full body, phenolic tension and density give this white form and beauty. Extremely long and flavorful. Drink or hold.
Fermented in stainless steel and aged in new French wood, Capellania hails from a parcel of 70-year-old Viura at 485 metres. This is an increasingly refined, nuanced, ageworthy white with salinity, minerality, precision and notes of citrus, white pepper and grapefruit. 2020-30
The Viura plot covers 6 hectares, planted in 1945 on a plateau at an altitude of 485 metres. The wine has been aged for fifteen months in new French oak after fermentation in stainless steel. Green tinges and white gold, then a seductive nose which marries tropic fruit, beeswax, verbena and chamomile. The palate adds chalky, white pepper complexity and hints of pineapple and quince. The tropical and the citric dance an energetic pas de deux; fresh and composed, yet, for all that, one does not entirely lose the distinctive waxy personality of its previous incarnation, when American oak held court.
