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; 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 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 water level in
the soil is rich and superficial, nourishing the vines during the warm summers. All grapes
are manually harvested.
Winemaking
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.
