2011 Capellania Roja Blanco Marques de Murrieta

I have shown this at a couple of tastings recently where a number of tasters have described it as the best white wine they have ever tasted.  It is 100% Viura from estate grown fruit planted in 1945 

situated at the highest point of the Castillo Ygay Estate. The wine has been kept for a year and a half in new French oak barrels and one year in bottle; giving an astonishing complexity, structure and elegance. It is a very singular white wine, with the soul of a red wine which surprises all who taste it. A white wine that exceeds all expectations with its complexity and structure.

2013 Luis Canas Crianza

From old vines grown in the Alavesa this is an exceptional Crianza.  After spending 12 months in 3yr old american and french oak barrels this wine develops a complex nose of fruit,leather and spice.  The palate is dense and refined with a lift of acidity on the long finish that balances with the ripe tannins.
