This wine is produced following the traditional method used in the Rioja region for white wines. After harvesting, the Viura bunches undergo static maceration without destocking for 18 hours in order to liberate aromas. The grapes are then left to settle at 5ºC and following this alcoholic fermentation takes place in French oak barrels. The wine is left on its lees and in total remains in barrel for 6 months. Following bottling in October 2013 the wine will remain in bottle for 6 more months before being released to the market.

The 2016 vintage was awarded 89 points and Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their July 2017 edition review of Rueda Verdejos (see blue link below). We appreciate it is subjective, but we judge the 2015 to be of equal quality and drinkability, and the 2016 will be coming (y)our way soon!
The special personality of Beronia Rueda Verdejo comes from the perfect unión of the Verdejo variety and the ‘cascajoso’ stony soil of the region. The vineyard, well ventilated, rich in calcium, magnesium and with excellent drainage, give this Beronia Rueda a unique character.
This a wine (unusually) produced from two different harvests in the same vineyard. An early harvest with fermentation at high temperatures in order to achieve an explosion of aromas and notes of ripe stone fruits. Then a second later harvest fermentated at lower temperatures looking for maturity and more concentration and complexity on the palate. The resulting wine is a blend of the two distinct winemaking techniques to achieve an aromatic wine which is fresh, flavoursome and, at the same time, complex.

‘Miranius’, apparently, is a clever fox who ventures into the Celler Credo vineyards and is "delighted by the sweet aromas of the grapes".
The white wine Miranius is made exclusively with grapes from vineyards owned by Celler Credo in the county of Alt Penedès (Barcelona). All of the vineyards have been cultivated in accordance with the principles of organic, biodynamic agriculture. Celler Credo’s vineyards let plant cover grow spontaneously between the vines. This cover plays a crucial role, loosening the soil, regulating water retention and drainage 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 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, the producer works with very low production volumes in their vineyards, taking great care over ripening with the aim of producing wines with natural, fresh acidity. This wine may contain natural sediments.
