Herdade do Rocim Alentejano Indigena 2019

A deeply coloured and concentrated wine, full of dark
berried fruits with a touch of eucalyptus. The full bodied
texture is beautifully balanced by vibrant freshness.


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.


Vintage
The 2019 vintage began with a warm spring which encouraged an early bud-burst.
Ideal weather during flowering stimulated good yields. The summer saw excellent
ripening conditions, with warm, dry days promoting ripening and reducing the risk of
disease in the vineyards. Rainfall at the end of August revitalised the vines for the final
stages of ripening and the grapes picked were of excellent quality.


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 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
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.
