Mirra Alentejo White Blend 2019
Gota means “drop,” in Portuguese, and in every drop of this aromatic field blend is the history, terroir, and vivacious mirra, or essence, of winemaking from Portugal’s Alentejo region. Balanced and fresh, with notes of pear, white truffle, asparagus, and soft, sweet herbs. Sustainably farmed on a blend of granite and schist soils, this is a perfect partner for chicken and rich fish dishes.
Winemaker Natalia Jessa is on the forefront of becoming the new face of Portuguese wines and one of the hardest working people around. Having relocated to Portugal for love from Poland via Ireland to Oporto, Natalia Jessa has really taken grasp of what is virtually an underserved market for inexpensive and incredibly delicious Portuguese wine.
Having been a buyer at one of England's top food and wine markets, Tesco, for years where she studied wine through WSET, when she arrived to live in Portugal, Natalia developed her own distribution company to fulfill the needs of her various employers and clients over the years. She quickly recognized an opportunity to collaborate with some of the country’s best vintners to bottle lovely expressions from wineries in each region, using only local varieties.
Gota means “drop,” in Portuguese. With each drop of these wines, Natala aims to capture native varietals, flavors, tradition, and lots of fun. “Drink it, don’t overthink it,” Natalia says. And these wines over deliver in a BIG way.
