Espumante do mar: Miolo is the first Brazilian winemaker to immerse bottles in underwater cave

unnamedSubmerged sparkling wines have 10 times more molecular compounds than those aged by the traditional method. Richer and floral flavor and clear notes of butter and nuts were also observed.

To celebrate the successful sales of the Miolo Cuvée Tradition Brut sparkling wine on French soil, Miolo Group bets on a unique system of aging and stabilization of the product: the immersion of bottles in underwater cellars.

Just over two months ago, a lot of sparkling wine celebrated in the foreign market was immersed in the sea of the province of Bretagne, France in the North Atlantic.

The whole operation was carried out in underwater cellars, creating ideal conditions, not only to age, but also to confer unique characteristics to the wines submitted to this process.

Strategically immersed in the island of Ouessant, in the region known as Baie du Stiff, bottles of Miolo Cuvée Tradition Brut are in contact with sea temperatures (between 11 and 13 ° C) and air (8 to 10 ° C) Besides receiving the beneficent influences of the constant and gentle sea agitation.

According to Adriano Miolo the surprising effects resulting from the conditions of conservation of the bottles are observed in laboratory tests and tastings frequently performed to accompany the ripening of the beverage submitted to the immersion process. “In a mass spectrometry analysis, for example, a submerged foamer presented 10 times more molecular compounds than those aged by the traditional method. These compounds are responsible for the formation of the aromas and the complexity of the wine. ”

ffdsfdsfStill according to Adriano Miolo, in blind tastings conducted by specialists in the area, the results brought some relevant highlights to affirm the quality of the process: the sparkling wines present a richer and more floral flavor, they acquire complexity without losing the freshness perceiving itself, also, clear notes of butter and nuts.

The bottles of Miolo Cuvée Tradition Brut are arranged horizontally in a special container and will stand for one year in the submerged cellar. The sparkling wines will be removed from the sea in November this year and marketed in Brazil and France in a special edition.

The Miolo Cuvée Tradition Brut is made in the Vale dos Vinhedos (RS) with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes by the Traditional Method (with fermentation in the bottle itself).
