Winery information

Miolo

Since the first plantings of grapes on the Miolo plots in 1897, the area and family have been known for providing quality fruit. It was only in the 1970s that attention began to turn to what we know as ?Classic? grape varieties and then in the 1990s began to bottle it under their own label. While many New World producers in South America rely on irrigation to grow vines in the first place, Miolo?s vineyards can be farmed entirely naturally. The resulting wines then reflect the terroir much more authentically than wines grown on land requiring constant intervention.The winery has benefitted from some of the best growing conditions in South America, let alone Brazil and therefore when the time came to modernise the winery they knew they had to get it right. The family were determined to grow their operation successfully; they knew that in order to be taken seriously in the International markets they had to ensure they expanded responsibly. The initial update of the winery was assisted by Michel Rolland who helped them cut yields and introduce modern techniques in the vineyard and acquire the latest technology in the winery.Miolo are without a doubt one of the key pioneers of Brazilian wine. They have proven, whether sparkling or still, a focus on crafting wines that have an old world character but with their own Brazilian twist. Their focus on classic grape varieties unconstrained by complex and outdated quality laws has meant some genuinely ingenious blends and styles. Their commitment to supporting the growth of quality Brazilian wine is unmatched, Miolo are currently the largest exporter of fine Brazilian wines.

Tasted March 2011 - Bright Victoria plum colour. Deeply coloured. Lots of red fruit on the nose. Very attractive. Dry and bags of red fruit on the palate but dry tasting. Some skin grip adds freshness and food friendliness. Very fine bead. (JH)

Vinification notes

Manual harvest. Manual selection of the bunches in a selecting table, keeping the whole berries In the white grapes, careful pressing to ensure minimum contact with skins, so polyphenols are not extracted. Fifty percent of must is extracted (0.5l from 1kg of grapes). In the red grapes, the filling of the tanks is by gravity In the red grapes, it is made short maceration at 1ºC, for 4 hours and it is taken 20% pf the must from these varietals. Blend of the must of white and red grapes. ''Debourbage'': prior cold cleaning of the must at the temperature of 8°C. Alcoholic fermentation in controlled temperature from 13 º to 15º Conservation in stainless tanks Second fermentation in the bottle for approximately 40 days, in controlled temperature of 12°C Approximate aging of 6 months on yeast in groundwater and acclimatized caves. ''Remuage'': bottles are placed in special pyramidal racks and manually rotated (1/4 turn) daily for about 30 days, so that the residue collects in the bottlenecks.
