Herdade do Rocim, Mariana Alentejano 2020
Touriga Nacional, Aragonez
This vibrant blend of native Portuguese grapes delivers exuberant aromas of red berries complemented by subtle spicy notes. Textured on the palate with silky tannins enveloping the fruit through to a long, delicious finish.
The grapes were harvested into 12 kilogram boxes to avoid spoiling the fruit and the grapes were carefully selected on the sorting table. The wine was made following a philosophy of minimal intervention, the grapes fully destemmed, lightly crushed and cold macerated to extract aroma and flavour. Fermentation took place in small stainless steel vats at 24°C with indigenous yeasts. The wine was aged for three months in 300 to 500 litre French oak barrels.
Herdade do Rocim is an estate located between Vidigueira and Cuba, in the Lower Alentejo. It comprises 120 hectares, 70 of which are made up of vineyards and 10 hectares of olive trees. Since its inception in 2000, Herdade do Rocim has invested heavily in the vineyards, replanting vines and introducing new varieties. They are pioneers in ‘amphora wines’, following the ancient traditions of vinification in pots known as ‘Tahla’. The vineyard is cultivated manually and minimal intervention is used in the cellar, to produce fresh, elegant and mineral wines. In 2018, Herdade do Rocim was awarded Best Wine Producer by Revista de Vinhos.
