You can’t get a grape more local than Antão Vaz in this part of Alentejo but when you combine it with the richness of Viognier you get an entry level wine that punches well above its price. This white wine is packed full of pear & lemon curd on the nose that makes your mouth water straight away. On the palate it has a smooth texture & richness combined with easy acidity that gives this white good length & liveliness.

Winery – Mingorra

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.

Tasting Notes

One of the best things about Alentejo as a wine region is that it is free to blend indigenous & international grape varieties to create wines of real quality & unique character. You can’t get a grape more local than Antão Vaz in this part of Alentejo but when you combine it with the richness of Viognier you get an entry level wine that punches well above its price. This white wine is packed full of pear & lemon curd on the nose that makes your mouth water straight away. On the palate it has a smooth texture & richness combined with easy acidity that gives this white good length & liveliness. If you like well-priced wine that has an abundance of white & tropical fruit & a deep mouthfeel then this is the wine for you.
