DOC Alentejo White

If you visit the Alentejo, you just might stumble upon the Commiphora Myrrh tree, the very same tree that was harvested throughout the ages for its aromatic resin. In Greek, it’s called Mirra, meaning essence, which we felt was the ideal fit for this wine! Do us a favor, relax by a tree and savor the truffle, mushroom and asparagus flavors within.

In the endless space, in the immensity of the undulating plains of Redondo – one of the two regions of Alentejo protected by natural barrier of Serra da Ossa, are located vineyards which give grapes to Mirra. Unique microclimate and terroir of the region produce extremely fresh wines with fabulous equilibrium and energy. Big percentage of Arinto grape provides great longevity of wine while aromatic Fernão Pires gives tropical aromas.
