Herdade do Rocim Alentejano Indigena 2020

A deeply coloured and concentrated wine, full of dark
berried fruits with a touch of eucalyptus, full bodied but
balanced by a vibrant spiciness and minerality.
Producer Note
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.
Vineyard
Herdade do Rocim is associated with the Sustainable Program of the Alentejo
Viticulture. This wine is made from organically grown grapes. The estate is situated on
the Vidigueira fault, a 30 mile long east-west facing escarpment which rises to 420
metres. The fault significantly influences the climate, trapping the cool, humid Atlantic
winds, so despite its southern location it is one of the most temperate sub regions in the
Alentejo. These cooling and humid influences descend at night, creating diurnal
temperature differences of 15°C which extend the ripening period; with the warm days
concentrating the flavours in the grapes, while balancing natural acidity is retained
during the cool nights. The soils are of granitic and schistous origin. The vineyard is
made up of older and younger vines; the latter are trained according to the Cordon
Royat method. The fruit was manually harvested at optimal maturity.
Winemaking
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.
Tasting Note
