If you have never tried a white Rioja, we advise you to give it a go and this, from probably the best producer in the region, would be a great one to start with. A modern take on the white Rioja style with an incredibly long finish which rivals white Burgundies twice the price. Viura is the main white grape of Rioja and it makes some fantastic wines. Marques de Murrieta are serious about their whites and age this for 20 months in new French oak barrels (a very expensive process and one which many other producers skip).
This adds a lovely creamy vanilla and hazelnut element, which is cut expertly by the very fine balanced acidity and an undertone of saline minerality. To this, add the primary flavours of ripe golden fruit, almonds and a slight smokiness and you have the whole package. White meats, foie gras or even Asian dishes would match the Capellania perfectly.
