These aromas are complemented by hints of citrus zest and a subtle minerality, adding a refreshing touch to the overall profile. Upon tasting, the wine reveals a harmonious balance between its vibrant acidity and luscious fruitiness. The palate is greeted with flavors of juicy peach, ripe pear, and tangy apricot, which are beautifully enhanced by a touch of honeyed sweetness. The wine's medium body and smooth texture provide a luxurious mouthfeel, while the well-integrated oak imparts a subtle hint of vanilla and spice. The Celler Credo Miranius boasts a long and lingering finish, leaving a lasting impression of its remarkable complexity and finesse. This wine is a true delight to savor, and it pairs wonderfully with a variety of dishes, including seafood, poultry, and creamy cheeses. Read more
Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.
Sweetness

Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

The Meín vineyard in Leiro, Ourense, boasts historical significance dating back to 1158, acknowledged for its exceptional grape quality by the abbot of San Clodio Monastery. Viña Meín, pivotal in shaping modern Ribeiro, was established in 1988 by Javier Alén, later acquired by Ribera del Duero producer Pago de Carraovejas in July 2019. As part of the Alma Carraovejas group, Viña Meín and Emilio Rojo are under their umbrella. The vineyards, including Emilio Rojo's ancient terraced plot, span the Avia valley with sábrego granite soils. Viña Meín focuses on red and white cuvées, while Emilio Rojo remains a premium single-vineyard wine. Under new ownership, the 2019 harvest introduced separate plot and grape variety processing, emphasizing complexity. Winemaker Laura Moreno aims for elegance in reds and a nuanced white blend. All wines are anticipated to be released with extended bottle aging for heightened complexity upon market entry.

The history of Cuatro Rayas winery in the Spanish appellation of Rueda dates back to 1935. For the past 30 years, this history has been closely intertwined with the name Angel Calleja. In the mid-1970s, Angel Calleja completed his winemaking studies at the University of Madrid and took over the responsibility for the winery's technical processes in the same year. Over the years, Angel became one of Spain's most prominent oenologists, and Cuatro Rayas grew alongside him. Today, the winery is one of the largest producers in the region. Predominantly, you'll find the white grape variety Verdejo in the vineyards located in the Duero River Valley, situated at altitudes between 700 to 850 meters. The climate includes cold winters, a short spring, hot summers, significant temperature fluctuations within a 24-hour period, and nutrient-poor soils rich in sand and stones. These conditions create optimal conditions for winemaking, and Angel Calleja and his team excel in harnessing their full potential.
