“This is quite a find, a wine made in the simplest environmentally friendly way 11 years ago that is maturing with amazing results. I honestly don’t think you’ll find many as good as this for under £20” – Sarah

Imagimem is the most sustainable option that is only made in special years. The last was 2011 & we don’t know when the next will be! Certified by the Norwegian institute for sustainability, this wine has one of the lowest carbon footprints from its bottle to its plantable label!

Imaginem has a light brighter brown colour that gives away the age of this wine. It presents a lovely note of ripe fruit like damson & blackberry with some warm spices & earth. It is a pure indulgence on the palate with tertiary notes of mushroom, nutmeg & liquorice combined with the freshness of coriander & ripe red fruit. Elegant, subtle tannins & mature fruit all the way leaving a long, delicious balanced flavour on your palate.

 

 

Imaginem – Low Carbon footprint

The Winery

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.

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.

The Wine

Imaginem is the result of a quest to produce a certified low carbon footprint wine, the winery looked at their own practices to see where they were polluting, which resulted in much less intervention with the vines, &  ess resources, then they looked at the packaging so chose a cheaper lighter bottle that was recyclable, they chose to leave off the traditional capsule, the label is made from recycled paper too.

To top it off the bottle has a banner tag which is impregnated with basil, rocket or watercress seeds for you to plant and give back to the environment.  The wine is only made from the best grapes from an exceptional harvest and the last one was 2011, we don’t know when the next will arrive so make this an experience to remember.
