Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes, coming from sustainable practice vineyards planted in clay-limestone terroir, are harvested at night in low temperatures, in order to limit the loss of color. They undergo systematic sorting and are vinified between 14o C (57.2° F) and 18o C (64.4° F) in temperature-controlled vats. Malolactic fermentation is blocked to preserve the wine’s natural acidity.

Interesting Facts
Mira is the name of a giant red star in the Cetus Constellation.


Serving Hints

This wine is ideally served by itself as an aperitif, but is also excellent with white meats, such as chicken or pork, grilled fish and mixed salads, and pairs well with many light, summery meals.
