Bodega Miras was founded by Marcelo Miras in the late 1990’s and is situated in the Rio Negro region of Patagonia. Marcelo grew up in a wine producing family from Mendoza but considers Patagonia to be the perfect place to produce cooler-climate, terroir-driven wines from varieties including Pinot Noir and Malbec. All of Marcelo’s wines are produced from plots of old vines dotted around the semi-desert-like landscape of Rio Negro. Every stage of the winemaking process is done by hand and attention to detail is paramount throughout.
Marcelo harnesses the cooler climate of Rio Negro in order to produce wonderfully crisp whites, such as this 100% Semillon – expect bags of fresh lemon and peach notes, backed up by the typical varietal character of waxy lemons and a long, fresh finish.
