Mirum 2019, Valdaya, Ribera del Duero
Floral and fruity aromas, with a hint of smoked meat and a light
toasted notes. The acidity, freshness and alohol are well
balanced, giving a very elegant and long taste.
Bodega Valdaya was set up by Elena and Joaquin Gonzalez as a small family business and is now run by their daughter Miriam. The vision for the winery changed dramatically under her management and in 2013 they took on two young winemakers, Marta Ramas and Miguel Fisac, who have brought the wines into a different league.
In the winery, the grapes are destemmed and vatted in open barrels and concrete tanks where they macerate for 2-3 days and then begin spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts that lasts about 20 days. Light daily punching is carried out to favor extraction. Once the alcoholic fermentation is finished, the free-run wine from each plot is transferred to a selection of fine-grain barrels based on its aging potential and organoleptic characteristics, where malolactic fermentation is carried out and subsequent aging for 18 months.
