Mingorra Terras d'Uva Branco

On the hot plains of the Baixo Alentejo, just a few kilometres from the city of Beja, is one of the oldest wine estates in the region. Its vineyards represent decades of history that Henrique Uva has preserved & farmed for many years & which he always wanted to develop as an independent producer.

In 2004, he achieved his dream, with the project that goes by the name of Henrique Uva/Herdade da Mingorra. The winery is surrounded by a landscape that that is abundant, with an amazing diversity of plants & fauna, with several river basins forming veritable oasis. Built in the heart of Herdade da Mingorra, the 2,000m2 Winery only vinifies the estate’s own grapes & works with vinification processes at various levels. In total, more than two & a half million euros have been invested & the Winery has been designed to preserve traditional techniques in perfect harmony with the highest technology.

Vineyards

The estate covers a total of 1,400 hectares, with three properties: Herdade da Mingorra, Sociedade Agrícola do Barrinho & Herdade dos Pelados. As well as 135 hectares of vineyards, it has 210 hectares of irrigated olive groves, 200 hectares of intensively farmed almond groves, while the remainder is under traditional crops & woodland.

Vinification

Fermentation is in temperature controlled, stainless steel vats at 14C. The wine is un oaked for purity.

Tasting Notes

Packed full of pear & lemon curd on the nose that makes your mouth water straight away. On the palate, the wine has a smooth texture & richness combined with an easy acidity that gives the wine good length & liveliness.

This is a brilliant accompaniment to fresh salads, Thai food, Mediterranean veg, fish & shell fish and will also stand up to Piri Piri chicken cooked on the BBQ.
