Characteristics of Mirianius
Miranius is a white wine from the D.O Penèdes produced by Celler Credo. The winery is located in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia (Barcelona).
Miranius is made using 2 different grape varieties: Xarel.lo (86%) with a small percentage of Macabeo (14%). The vineyards used are cultivated in accordance with the principles of organic, biodynamic agriculture.
At their vineyards, Celler Credo allows 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 they practise), and helping to foster biodiversity and maintain a balance in the vineyard ecosystem.
Natural treatments based on medicinal plants (phytotherapy) are used on vines to control the presence of fungus and strengthen the vine’s defences in a natural way. This also prevents the use of any chemical products on the vineyards.
As for production, the winemaking process is carried out using traditional methods.
Today, the D.O Penedès is experimenting with viticulture and winemaking like no other region in Spain, home to a vast range of different grape varieties. The region is home to traditional white and red varieties, foreign ones, noble ones, permitted grapes, experimental grapes, and those that demostrate intrinsic qualities. As well as the grapes, the production techniques used are also worth noting, the location of the vineyards, the yields per hectare, the wines produced using traditional, original or even exclusive blends, the different ageing times, as well as the complexity of the different barrels used! But the reality is, given the vast diversity, it can be difficult to pinpoint what really defines a wine from Penedès, since there are so many types of wines and wineries in the region. However, the common denominator of all the wines from Penedès continues to be balance and quality.
