A lively young wine that is very vibrant and ages well in the bottle. It is made mainly from the Mediterranean variety Xarel·lo, with subtle notes of Macabeu. Miranius has strong varietal character with crisp acidity and a good palate.
|Wine maker notes|
|The white wine Miranius is made exclusively with grapes from vineyards owned by Celler Credo in the county of Alt Penedes (Barcelona). All of the vineyards have been cultivated in accordance with the principles of organic, biodynamic agriculture. In Celler Credo’s vineyards we let plant cover grow spontaneously between the vines. This cover plays a crucial role, loosening the soil, regulating water retention and drainage (essential in the dry farming system we practise), and helping to foster biodiversity and maintain a balance in the vineyard ecosystem. Natural treatments based on medicinal plants (phytotherapy) are applied to the vines to control the presence of fungus and strengthen the vine’s defences in a natural way. All Celler Credo grapes are harvested by hand to ensure the excellent quality of the fruit. All our wines are produced and bottled on the property. Miranius is a lively young wine that is very vibrant and ages well in the bottle. It is made mainly from the Mediterranean variety Xarel·lo, with subtle notes of Macabeu. Miranius has strong varietal character with crisp acidity and a good palate. To achieve this, we work with very low production volumes in our vineyards, taking great care over ripening with the aim of producing wines with natural, fresh acidity. This wine may contain natural sediments.|

|INTERPRETING LA XAREL·LO. Xarel·lists: a term coined to describe those who interpret and explore the properties and virtues of the Xarel·lo grape variety. The Mediterranean variety Xarel·lo is the leitmotif of Celler Credo’s wine project and the thematic thread that gives rise to our wines. Aged on the lees, macerated with the grape skin or stems, with no sulphites added – made today using techniques we learned from our grandparents yesterday... In short, a thousand and one ways of interpreting Xarel•lo. In other words, Xarel·lo is our credo. Territories represented by wine BIODINAMICALLY. At Celler Credo we see ourselves as defenders of bio (life) and dynamics (movement). We’re guided by values that bring us closer to the land, territories and landscapes of which we form part. Is this, perhaps, the path to reconciling man and nature? Maybe. We’re committed to making terroir white wines – without chemical fertilisers, pesticides or herbicides – wines that speak plainly, recounting a sensory history that’s free of artifice, authentic. This is a dialogue between man, the variety and the land; a conversation in which there’s much to say and nothing to hide. Xarel•lo wines that chatter; vines that give up their claim to the starring role in a vineyard inhabited by fennel, wild radish, yellow fleabane... by insects and animals that each contribute in their own small way to an ecosystem which, to express its true nature, needs something as easy to say as it is difficult to achieve: balance.|
