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.
Herdade do Rocim is associated with the Sustainable Program of the AlentejoViticulture. This wine is made from organically grown grapes; 70% of the vineyard is certified and the remaining 30% is in conversion. The estate is situated on the Vidigueira fault, a 30 mile long east-west facing escarpment which rises to 420 metres.
The Alicante Bouschet grapes were carefully selected to ensure the best quality fruit was vinified. Fermentation took place with indigenous yeasts in concrete tanks. The wine was aged in concrete tanks without the influence of oak, to allow the freshness of the Vidigueira terroir and the purity of fruit to be fully expressed.
A deeply coloured and concentrated wine, with wonderful depth of dark berried fruit complemented by a characteristic eucalyptus note. Full bodied, with vibrant freshness that beautifully balances the intensity of fruit.
